An alternate header with Month and Year Dropdowns would be helpful on the DatePicker
Provide properties to set min/max time of the DateTimePicker, e.g always shows from 8AM to 5PM of everyday.
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
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.
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.
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 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
Add a multiple date selection to the Calendar. A multiple date selection calendar is very important for professional web applications in many situations. Also, there is a lack of events in the API. It is always important to provide more events then less. Here a few suggestions: Property year; /// Year displayed by control. Property month; /// Month (1 to 12) displayed by control. A method in the API to easily get the selected date(s). A method in the API to easily set the selected date(s). An option to indicate if we allow/disallow multi-selection. A callback event (and passing the data as an argument) when a date is selected/unselected to allow/disallow the selection/deselection (by returning a true/false). This would allow to easy show a warning message when some dates are selected/unselected. We may currently do part of it in the change event but adding events onbefore/onafter selection would be nice. Add the option to hide/show days from previous/next month. Add the option to enabled/disable click from previous/next month. The Year selection on the top should be a combo that allow keyboard input. You may check the Yahoo Calendar event & properties. It will provide a good examples (http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/docs/YAHOO.widget.Calendar.html)
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.
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.
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.
Many calendars have the ability to show a column of ISO week numbers alongside the dates (either to the right or the left). Although it's not a show stopper I have such a requirement in my current project. While other controls offer this there are none I know of which permit custom calculation of the week number - another requirement for this project.
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!
It would be good if the datetimepicker would allow starting weeks from Monday. This is the standard in certain areas.
Add the option to be able to highlight today's date in calendar and date pickers.
Need a feature to restrict the days to be displayed in the Kendo UI datetime pickers control. For example . I want to only display say dates than falls only on Thursday and Sunday where users can select on that dates and the other dates to be disabled or invincible. I want to have a flexibility to change it to other days as well.
I'd like to be able to specify a custom date in the datepicker footer rather than "today". In financial end of day applications you often want to select the previous business day e.g. the "close date".
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
