Ok, so our client wants to type in dates...no mouse at all.

What they would like to do is use tab instead of arrows to move between month/date/year fields. Is this possible?

Thanks,
David

Hello David,

TAB key is a special key in WinForms - it is used for navigation between controls.
To avoid the default WinForms behavior you, should override Form's ProcessCmdKey event and check if Keys.Tab is pressed. Then, you should select next date/time part in the RadMaskedEditBox/RadDateTimePicker. Please refer to the sample code below:

MaskDateTimeProvider provider =this.radMaskedEditBox1.MaskedEditBoxElement.Provider as MaskDateTimeProvider;
provider.SelectNextEditableItem();

Take a look at the attached sample project that demonstrates the complete behavior for RadMaskedEditBox and for RadDateTimePicker navigation. 

I hope this helps.
