Presently, the behavior of the control, whenever an erroneous input is detected, is one of the following:
- Clear out the value, leaving the input blank
- tries to parse the value, and replace it with a numeric/date value, closest to the input supplied by the user.
Altering these options may be intuitive in some cases, but not implementing it as a feature of the control. This is especially valid, since the control exposes api to allow you to programatically cater for this setup. Nevertheless, we may consider extending this functionality, for example by providing a property to specify the default value on error.
