    I'm trying to show the data range selected as parameters in the header of the report. I added a text box and added {Parameters.StartDate.Value}. The problem is it shows the time and I just need the date. I tried this { Format('{0:d}',Parameters.StartDate.Value)} but it does not work. What is the proper way to accomplish my objective. Thanks in advanced.

    Hello Jet,

    The following expression works as expected as a value of a TextBox item:
    = Format('{0:d}', Parameters.Parameter1.Value)
    The above expression is tested with Telerik Reporting Q3 2015. The expression uses the Format text function and standard Date and Time format strings.

    Other approach is to use the TextBox item's Format property, where formats will be displayed depending on the application's current culture - Report Globalization.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.
