VirtualGridDateTimeEditor: Accept user input without separators

Right now, when a VirtualGridDateTimeEditor is displayed in a RadVirtualGrid, and the user chooses to enter the date (and not use the date time picker), then the user has to enter the date inclusing the separators.

So a Dutch date has format: "dd-MM-yyyy", and the user has to enter "31-12-2023", including the dashes.

Hereby my request for a new feature:  Entering dates without the separators / dashes, thus: "3112023". So at the moment the user enters two digits, move to the next segment, etc. The request goes for the time segments.

This would be a performance gain while doing a lot of data entry.

Hi Martin,

I am happy to hear that you have found the property which controls this. You can check this and other properties related to the MaskDateTimeProvider in its documentation. I am declining this feature request as it is already implemented.

I found the property AutoSelectNextPart, so it feature already exists.
