Hi, I´m having some trouble editing dates in a grid. In the schema model, the type is "date". If i set the date to 02/07/2014 (using the calendar that pops up automatically) in the model the object it´s transformed into: Date {Wed Jul 02 2014 00:00:00 GMT+0200}. Then, when sending this object back to the server for saving the row, the value sent is 2014-07-01T22:00:00.000Z, which is the json representation for that date, i guess (JSON.stringify and kendo.stringify subtract those 2 hours from the date), so the value stored in the database is wrong.
I need to know what is the correct way to manage this. Best solution for me would be that the framework somehow created those dateTime objects without specifying +2 GMT.
Thanks.

Hello Juan Jose,

This is a well known scenario caused by the fact that Date objects in JavaScript are always created with a timezone offset taken from the operating system's clock. I would recommend checking this example, which illustrates how the case could be handled by converting the dates to UTC time both on the client and the server side.
