DateTimeEdit Turning Off Timer Update

The built-in DateTimeEdit seems to have a Timer executing every second to update the Underlying DateTime object to a new date.

So if I set the DateTimeEdit field DateTime to DateTime.MaxValue
The timer then adds a second to that and throws and exception.

I'm not interested in the Time just the Date. Wish there was an option so that time wouldn't be automatically updated with the clock tick. Disabling the Watch does nothing.

Going to use the WPF-Toolkit DatePicker instead. Just figured you should know about this annoyance.

Portion of the StackTrace.
at System.DateTime.op_Addition(DateTime d, TimeSpan t)at Syncfusion.Windows.Shared.Clock.UpdateDateTime()
at Syncfusion.Windows.Shared.Clock.Timer_Tick(Object sender, EventArgs e)

Hi Tobias,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

We have created a simple sample and tested this issue. We are able to see the issue when we set MaxDate of DateTime. We have filed a bug report about this issue. We will update you as soon as this issue gets fixed.

Thanks for your patience.
