From the related forum I can only see that you were passing incorrect format to the "kendo.parseDate" method - if this is the issues that you mention than please note that the "parseDate" method automatically gets all formats from the current culture set and use them to parse the date. That why you can simply skip passing the date format to the method explicitly and if the format is correct the date will be parsed as expected.
Also please note that (as mentioned in our documentation
) it's highly recommended to use the ISO8601 Date format for sending / receiving dates from the server (or the page) as it's universal format which is not changed between the cultures (it's always parsed correctly).
