DateTimePicker (MaskedTextBox)

It would be great if this cotrol works like MaskedTextBox.

The standart sutuation: very often we in need by using the direct input date and time in this control.

For example, there is a date in the contol (12.05.2011 20:20:00) and I want to enter the date\time (25.12.2012 13:45:00), so I will select the whole string and directly enter the numbers (12052011202000) and if this control works like MaskedTextBox it will understand direct input and input the date\time will be very easy. This ability is necessary for fast input large number of date\time`s without using mouse.

If would be great if you could realise this functionality.

Thanks.

I understand the functionality you are looking for.  You are assuming that there will always be numeric entry, but remember the DateTimePicker can have any format applied to it in any culture.  So there is also the possibility of entering text of various unknown lengths in combination of numbers.  I am sorry but I will not be implementing this functionality.  Thank you for your suggestion.
