RadDateInput supports a wide range of date formats and cultures. You can change the culture dropdown and see the effect on RadDateInput.

The new 'smart parsing engine' allows you to enter not only digits along with separators for the date/time but even month names or dates/years in long/short date format. This gives the user the flexibility to enter the date in a format that suits him best. The technology for parsing the date exceeds the Microsoft Outlook date input control.

Additionally you can restrict the date format which will be recognized by the date input via the DateFormat property of the control. The acceptable values are d for Short date, D for Lond date, f for Full date, custom format, etc.

Moreover, you can define the culture of the displayed date in order to conform to a specific region format. This can be fine-tuned via the Culture property of RadDateInput
