    Hey Telerik Community,

    I have a problem with how the RadNumericTextBox does its range validation. It does too much, and I am afraid that my users will end up with bad data values.

    The Scenario:
    When you assign a value to MaxValue, and the user exceeds that maximum value, the textbox auto-corrects the value to the max.

    Ex: I set the max value to 9999.9 and allow the user to type in 6 digits using the MaxLength attribute.

    The Problem:
    The user accidentally types in 123456 and on blur the textbox validates and when validation fails the RadNumericTextBox auto-corrects the value to 9999.9. NOT GOOD for my customer. The values we are saving could put actual lives in harms way if they are not correct.

    The Solution:
    We would prefer that it simply fail validation, display its fail message, and not allow the user to save the record.

    How can this be accomplished?
