If the calendar is used to select a date, the SelectionChanged event is fired.  But, if the user manually changes the date by typing in the textbox, the SelectionChanged is not fired until the user leaves the control.  Similar to the standard TextBox control, I would have expected there to be a TextChanged event (could not find one for the DatePicker), or the SelectionChanged event would be fired when the user manually types in a date.  Any way that I can be notified that the date has been changed without the user leaving the control (like a TextBox)?

Hello GEB,

Currently RadDatePicker doesn't support such a functionality. The main idea of the RadDatePicker is to provide a valid DateTime object. For instance, if you type 1, it is not possible for the RadDatePicker to parse it in a valid DateTime value. That's way a SelectionChanged event is not firing.

All the best,

Hello,

I know this is an old post, I have the same "problem" as GEB, so I was wondering if you were planning to change this behavior and launch the event when the user leaves the textBox in the DatePicker.

Thanks

Hi GEB,

A solution for your case will be using the ParseDateTimeValue property. It will be triggered in every user input in the control.

Hello,

I was wondering if there was still no way to change the border from the blue edit mode to a red border with the focus still inside the datePicker box?
