Hi there,

Is there a way for the date picker to retain focus on invalid input. I have managed to achieve this in the combobox control by calling the focus() method inside the change event if the data entered is rubbish. However the date picker does not have a focus event (or at least not one that works the same as the combo box one).

I wonder if there is another way to achieve this?

Thanks

Hello Lynx IT,

The Kendo DatePicker widget element field returns the input element which holds the selected date string. I would suggest using the jQuery focus() method in order to focus the input element of the widget. 

var datepicker = $("#datepicker").data("kendoDatePicker");
datepicker.element.focus();

Thanks Boyan

 That works fine for controls directly on the page but doesn't seem to work for datepickers use as inline grid editors. The focus is still lost when the user attempts to tab out of the grid even though the jQuery focus is called in the change event.

 Any thoughts on how to get around that?

Hello Lynx IT,

Please find a http://dojo.telerik.com/uWiQO example that shows how retain focus if user tabs out the cell that contains the data picker widget as editor.
