Strict Mode

The strictMode is an act, that allows the user to enter only the valid date and time within the specified min/max range in textbox. If the input entered is invalid, then the component will stay with the previous value. Else, if the date and time is out of range, then the component will set the date to the min/max value.

The following example demonstrates the DateTimePicker in strictMode with min/max range of 5/5/2019 2:00 AM to 5/25/2019 2:00 AM. Here, it allows to enter only the valid date and time within the specified range. If you are trying to enter the out-of-range value as like 5/28/2019, then the value will set to the max value as 5/25/2019 2:00 AM. Since the value 28 is greater than to max value of 25. Or else if you are trying to enter the invalid date, then the value will stay with the previous value.
