Forbid typing a date earlier or later than a date if SelectableDateStart/SelectableDateEnd are set
Forbid typing a date earlier or later than a date if SelectableDateStart/SelectableDateEnd are set. Can be achieved by custom parsing.

Available in the 2016 Q1 Release: Implemented IsInputRestrictedToSelectableDates property in order to allow only selecting dates by input in the selectable range (when SelectableDateStart/SelectableDateEnd/BlackoutDates are used).

This functionality can be achieved by using custom parsing as explained in this article:

There is SDK Example demonstrating the exact implementation, you can find it on the following link:

Why this is still not implemented? 23 votes already...
Also, I think that is should be by default. What's the point of restricting dates in calendar, but allowing to enter them manually?

I work on WPF, and would very much like this resolved there as well.

It's nice that the minimum and maximum values can be limited in the calender, but in many cases the calendar isn't used at all, but the date is directly entered into the textbox, as it is much faster for dates like birthdays, avoiding all those nicely chos

I'd suggest simply having Minimum and Maximum as properties on the RadDateTimePicker,
and have the control propogate these settings to the various component controls that make
up the overall control (i.e. textbox, calendar, etc.).

Make it a property like CanUserTypeDatesOutsideSelectableDateRange :) or EnforceSelectableDates or LimitEntryToSelectableDates or anything.

Quick 30 minute change and test. Thank you.
