Type: Feature Request
Remove date input mask and next previous navigation


Below are some features we would like to have

Optionally remove the date input mask, so user will be able to type the date as free text field
- But when invalid, should change to previous value on blur
- Also to navigate out of datepickers user have to press tab multiple times
- Copy paste date should work as in free text field
- Select full date by mouse double click to copy
- User is responsible to copy date in proper format to work, or it should fall back to previous value

Next previous option in calendar view
- Next previous button in the calendar view instead of left navigation section

As we had discussed to be in feature request at: https://www.telerik.com/account/support-tickets/view-ticket/1388872

We already have similar feature requested as we know: https://feedback.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/1384025-cannot-copy-paste-date-between-2-datepickers

Thank you
Best regards

I'm adding some additional context from another client below:

"When using the calendar dropdown of the datetimepicker... the user has the ability to click a date part and then click "set" and a the time part is defaulted to a value:

Which results in a full valid datetime if the user doesn't particularly care about the time part:

However, if the user prefers to type in their selection and still doesn't care about the time part... they are left with an invalid value:

They are forced to type in a time part they don't care about which is a waste of time and effort.


Can we get an option to provide a "default autofill value" for the time part so that quick keyboard entry is possible?"

I'm interested in similar functionality, although I'd like to add some additional points. It would be nice if there was a configuration option such that a tab press while in the date input would directly navigate out of the input; however, I'd still like the arrow keys to navigate between date parts. This is exactly how the React version of the date picker works now on your demo pages. This is slightly different from the request to remove the date input mask, because in that scenario using the arrow keys would navigate between each character instead of each date part.

For point 1, please also consider to return an exact inputted values so the input format validation can be performed, please refer to below ticket:

Hi Mahavir,

Thank you for listing the desired features. I will add a link to this request in the other one too to avoid potential spreading of the votes.
