I've noticed you've made some progress on the DateTime, Date and Time EditBoxes in the 2017 version, but I currently have some issues with efficient input (in my opinion) for users who have to input data quickly.
Say I want to enter the date July 13, 1980, I find it natural that I could just type 13071980, which should change into 13.07.1980 when I press tab. Even easier would be if I could input 130780, which would result in the same. Entering the time value 1057 which would be automatically converted to 10:57 would result in much faster input.
If I don't input the separators, the control reverts to today's date, or the last valid date. I'm not a big fan of intrusive validation messages and the kind, but I also don't want the user ending up with an incorrect value because of the default fallback value when he or she is in a hurry. Being able to enable a feature that would for instance switch the background to red, and animate a background color fade back to default color in a couple of secods could give valuable visual feedback.
Any workaround you could suggest for allowing both input with and without separators? It would be very welcome if this could be available in a future version
On the plus side, I do enjoy that I don't have to press arrow keys to go to the next part, which made date and time very tedious in the past, but I would still like to be able to omit the separators, as I'm sure there are many users who find it natural to do so these days.
