Cannot copy-paste date between 2 datepickers

Cannot copy-paste date between 2 datepickers. Found issues:

  • Cannot select whole date by mouse. Now it's reset to select only one date part by mouse. Current workaround: clicking Ctrl+A with keyboard.
  • Similar: I think selecting whole date should be a default behavior when I click datepicker by mouse, because after keyboard navigation by TAB  the whole date is selected by default. No selection after clicking is also applicable (as it's done for standard input type="text").
  • Similar: cannot select whole date by mouse with double click (expected behavior for inputs).
  • Related issue: navigating by TAB across datepickers is too long. Because date parts are also "navigated". E.g. to navigate by TAB between 2 datepcikers I need to press TAB 4 times! If I have more datepickers, navigation is too annoying.
  • Minor: cannot drag&drop dates between datepickers.

Can be reproduced in any Kendo example (and browser) on the documentation site.

Hi Alexander,

Thank you for sharing your feedback.

The described behavior of the DatePicker component is by design, and is a result of our attempt to stick as closely to the behavior of the native HTML Input type="date" (as opposed to "text") element. You can confirm that none of the described features is available in a regular Input type date.

This is why I will change this thread from Bug Report to a Feature Request.

We will consider introducing a configuration option that will allow developers to set using a regular Input element internally (as opposed to the currently used DateInput component). This will allow for the Input to be one tab-stop during tabbing, and also some of the other desired behavior(s).

We will track the customer demand for this enhancement here, and prioritize accordingly when updating our roadmap.

Regards,
Dimiter Topalov

"with double click". Sorry, meant triple click. It's minor either.
