    • Integrate more parse formats into picker controls (3 digit time)

      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.

      • DateTime picker should display dates before the min value but in read only mode

        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

        • Add support for fuzzy dates in DateInput

          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.

          • Allow searchable times in kendo date time picker time drop down

            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.

            • Add support for disabled months and years in date picker

              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.

                • Make the datetimepicker default to current time when the user selects current date.

                  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.

                    Thanks for the explanation and your proposal, Idavis.

                    Note that you can achieve the behavior you are after (setting current time when the user selected today’s date from the picker) intercepting the change and open events as illustrated in this dojo sample:
                    http://dojo.telerik.com/ARuSU/3

                  • DatePicker Accepting Relative Values for min/max

                    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.

                          Thanks for the proposition, Nohinn. I will forward it to our devteam, so far this is not in our short term plans for datepicker improvements.

                        • KendoDatePicker allow use shortcut keys

                          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

                          • Allow quick entry of dates

                            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.

                                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.

                                • Add full Date object support to Date/Time Picker

                                  Currently when creating a Date/Time Picker object by using the time in milliseconds since 01.01.1970 UTC the Date/Time Picker works perfect.

                                  When trying to submit a form containing a Date/Time Picker, the widget will submit the formatted time/date instead of the milliseconds since 01.01.1970 UTC.

                                  There is a workaround to extend the onChange Event and manipulate the value of the input field manually. This might solve the technical problem but now the UTC milliseconds will be displayed inside the widget.

                                  Might it be possible that the widget formats the display date/time and keeps a hidden input field for storing the…

                                  • Add an event that is triggered before attempting to read the value from the input.

                                    In a filter input field I had one blur event
                                    to fix a entered date string.
                                    It wasn't called if the users hit "Enter" instead of cliking the Filter button or hitting TAB which
                                    would cause a blur event.

                                    T. Tsonev asked me to post this to "UserVoice portal":
                                    Maybe an event that is triggered before attempting to read the value from the input.
                                    This will consolidate both handlers in your case.

                                    Below are the two handlers to fix an input field if a blur or Enter key is done/hit:

                                    ---

                                    • Allow datetimepicker months to start from Monday

                                      It would be good if the datetimepicker would allow starting weeks from Monday. This is the standard in certain areas.

                                      • Add the ability to select date and time via scrolling display, slot machine, I mean ios style. :-)

                                        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!

                                        • easier time entry format

                                          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.
