Hi Christoph, This is not supported by Rad Date Picker - you cannot force parsing the text.
In my previous post I suggested to use Parse Date Time Value event, because in its handler you can get the characters right after they're entered in the input.
I found a bug on my site and I can't seem to find a solution.
When entering a date by hand and NOT tabbing/clicking somewhere outside of the Rad Date Picker the Selected Date is not written down to de Data Context.
I know this is a usual behavior in WPF and I have a workaround for the Text Box in form of checking the focused element, getting the bindingexpression and updating it before saving my object.

As about the problem you are facing - the value entered in the Tex Box is being parsed after the control looses its focus.
Date: Rad Date Picker dp = new Rad Date Picker(); dp = current Values as Rad Date Picker; if (dp.
