"Intuitive" input in DateTimeEdit


I am using the Datetimeedit component and I have a little question.

My DateTimeEdit has a custom pattern to display only hours and minutes (HH:mm) and I try to retrieve a behavior I had with a previous winform component. 

When I do a '915' input, I would like to get '9:15' in my DateTimeEdit, but I get '915:00' that become '00:00' because of the pattern.

Is there a way to get this behavior ? Maybe I have to use an other component such as SfMaskedEdit or something else?

Thank you for the answer,

Hi Marvin,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support

We suspect that you are using CanEdit of DateTimeEdit as true from your side. So that the typed text "915"(without
time separators) is considered as invalid and reset to 00:00. We suggest you to set CanEdit as false and use the
TAB key or Navigation arrows for navigating to next input field if single digit is entered. We have prepared a
sample for the same and you can download it from the following link:
