Let's keep this discussion in your other thread so we can determine what functionality you are after if you believe this is not related to the bug discussed here.
To answer the question on the date picker - yes, it will work the same way because it is a DateInput under the covers, so both components will have the same user experience.

Is this also going to work this way for the DatePicker?

I would expect this to work without using the arrows as well. Users should be able to type "05/03/2020" and also "05032020" since that is how these date input fields work everywhere else (see: https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/datepicker). Is that a part of this fix?
