DatePicker issues with angularjs

We have upgraded to (with a patch you gave us, to sort out some angular issues). But there are still issues with the datepicker

1. You cannot type in a new date. If you select the date and then delete it all, you cannot type anything in. This is in IE and Firefox - slightly different with Chrome ... delete the contents, enter ‘’1 and the date field will automatically be populated with ‘01/01/2001’

2. Backspace and Delete don't work on single characters. You can select the whole date and delete it.

There maybe other issues, but very hard to test with the above errors

Cheers ... Rob.

Easy to recreate

<span class="sampleName">DatePicker / AngularSupport</span>
    <div ng-app="syncApp">
        <div ng-controller="DatePickerCtrl">
            <input ej-datepicker e-value="dateValue" e-locale="locale" e-strictmode="true" />
            <script type="text/javascript">
                angular.module('syncApp', ['ejangular'])
                    .controller('DatePickerCtrl', function($scope) {
                        $scope.dateValue = new Date("2/3/2013");
                        $scope.locale = "en-GB";

That update does not work for us. We get the same issues as reported in this forum issue .... http://www.syncfusion.com/forums/121038/update-to-13-3-0-7-strange-behaviour ... which was fixed by the patch you sent us ... http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/121038/ze/File_Folder1620546042

Can you apply the fix for that to the code please.

Cheers ... Rob.

Hi Rob,

We have included the fixes for the above reported issues in our latest version. But we have fixed the issue (when e-value property set to specific value, datepicker doesn’t render properly) internally only. We will include this fix in our upcoming Volume 3 Service Pack 2, 2015, which is expected to be roll out by the end of November 2015.
