DateTimeEdit control inside a GridDataControl has odd selection behavior

I have a GridDataControl and in order to have the maximum amount of flexibility i have a custom GridDataVisibleColumn defined that has Two datetime edit controls for the column template.  Whenever i select a row the whole row highlights with default behavior except for the DateTimeEdit controls.  There is a textblock in between these two controls and that highlights properly.  What style do i have to enable/disable in order to get this to work properly?

Hi Kyle,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed your query. You can highlight the DateTimeEdit control by setting the Background to “Transparent”.

Please find the code snippet below:
