It would be great to allow custom configuration of Time drop down in DateTimePicker control. Since most occurrences in normal system will take place between normal business hours (7am - 6pm), it would make sense to have the time dropdown start at 7am and then go on from there so it would be: 7am 8am 9am .... 4pm 5pm 6pm ...... 12am 1am etc. This would improve user experience by putting the most commonly selected times first in the dropdown list and reduce the scrolling the user has to perform.
Optionally allow for the disabling of Daylight Savings time detection when using the DateTime picker, or to set the TimeZone for the picker manually.
Mobi scroll already provides this kind of selection (http://demo.mobiscroll.com/calendar/calendardatetime/#) but mobiscroll does not offer the full support of a schedule that kendo UI does. But oh how sweet it would be if Kendo also provided support for scrolling. As far as UX/UI is concerned picking a date and time via slot machine scrolling style is much easier to do on a mobile device. Thanks!
if we set min value just for validation for new entry...then if user retrieve old record from database which document date is before the minimum date it displays empty. so there should be read only dates available. thanks
Currently the disabled date function only make the dates disabled, but if you are using the component as a month/year picker through the "depth" property you would also like the months/years to be unselectable if the whole month is included in the disabled date period.
Add the feature to be able to walk through date, hour, and minute selection in a stepped fashion, similar to the functionality of this DatePicker: http://www.malot.fr/bootstrap-datetimepicker/demo.php The gist is to first allow for day selection. Then, with the popup still open, give the user the ability to select the hour of the day, and finally the particular minute of that hour.
I get people complaining at the length of lists for timepicker inputs, especially if using small minute intervals. How about an alternative input mode that allows for faster and simpler input. This method is great - visual, intuitive and quick. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYxxyPvOHyA Few others out there all with pros and cons
It would be helpful if when entering a date into a datepicker control you could just type +7 to have it select 7 days from today. Or -5 for 5 days ago. Or if you just type 0, it would select today. Or type 15 and it would select the 15th of the current month. This would make keying in dates much faster than using the calendar.
when mouse click in a kendoDatePicker, control will auto choose date part at clicked position, and we can use left and right arrow to go to another date part, use up and down arrow to cycle through all possible value of that part, or input number (month name in the case) directly instead
For the datepicker control, it would be great if it could support relative values for the min and max range like the jQuery datepicker does. For instance, you can set minDate: 0, which is today. Or you can say maxDate: "+6M" for a max date of 6 months from today (as in their documentation: https://api.jqueryui.com/datepicker/#option-maxDate). These generic expressions make it much easier to set restrictions.
Have the time drop down function kind of like normal drop downs, where they don't filter, but will jump down to the time you start typing after opening the drop down like the drop downs do when you start typing after opening them.
I noticed that the time picker would not parse a 3 or 4 digit time w/ am/pm (that doesn't have a ":" separator) even though there wouldn't be any ambiguity based on the parseFormat array. I was told that the picker doesn't officially support any time parsing that doesn't contain a colon and if some work without a colon it is by chance. This vote would be for more thorough format parsing on the picker controls. The ones I specifically noticed were failures to parse "hmmt", "hmmtt". See this ticket for more info and a dojo example. https://www.telerik.com/account/support-tickets/view-ticket?threadid=1164654
An alternate header with Month and Year Dropdowns would be helpful on the DatePicker
The editors do support inline footer's but you can't use an external footer template yet. Example template: <script type="text/template" id="datepicker-footer-template"> "Today: #:kendo.toString(data, 'yyyy-MM-dd')#, Week: #:kendo.recurrence.weekInYear(data,kendo.culture().calendar.firstDay)#" </script> Suggestion to add a footer-template configuration option like this: <input name="Date" data-role="datepicker" data-bind="value: Date" data-format="yyyy-MM-dd" data-week-number="true" data-footer-template="datepicker-footer-template"/> Jan
Parsing of the users Input (defined by ParseFormats) is stopping, as soon as min date is set. This happens if the date,evaluated by the parsing, is outside the min/max range. I would suggest, that parsing takes the min/max boundaries into account.
DateInput doesn't support fuzzy dates. (Where day/month/year are optional) This is useful in order entry applications where the developer doesn't have control over what information is available from customers and information supplied is inconsistent. The DateInput controller could have an option to read/submit formatted strings or some kind of strongly typed DTO so that given parts of the DateInput initialize as blank/null.
I want the datetimepicker to pull from the database if a value exists, show nothing if it doesn't, and get the current date and time when user clicks on the calendar icon. It doesn't get the current time. It shows midnight. I can get the datetimepicker to default to today's date (on display) and current time if I don’t try and pull a value from the database.
The current date time and date-time pickers don't allow for scrolling the data using the mouse scroll. This functionality is available in ajax controls this makes a mix web site not consistent in behavior of controls.
