I am sure this was working but I am not seeing the correct output now:

Row Data Context Property

[Display(Name = "Start Date")]
[DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:d}")]
public DateTime ClaimDate { get; set; }

 

XAML in the View

<telerik:RadGridView VerticalAlignment="Stretch" CanUserDeleteRows="False" CanUserFreezeColumns="False" CanUserInsertRows="False" CanUserReorderColumns="False" CanUserSearch="False" ShowGroupPanel="False"
                       ShowSearchPanel="False" ItemsSource="{Binding Data.ItemsSource}" BorderBrush="Transparent" IsReadOnly="True" ShowToolTipOnTrimmedText="True" RowIndicatorVisibility="Collapsed"
                       SelectionMode="Single" IsFilteringAllowed="False" AlternationCount="2">
  </telerik:RadGridView>

 

C# Interactive Window

> DateTime.Today.ToString("d")
"05/09/2017"

 

Screenshots are attached.

 

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Maurice

Hello Maurice,

I could not infer from your last reply what the exact issue at your end is. Could you please further clarify this?

From what I've seen in the image you provided, the results you get are expected because, as specified in the MS documentation on string formats:

"If the "d" format specifier is used without other custom format specifiers, it is interpreted as the "d" standard date and time format specifier." More information can be found in the Using single custom format specifiers section. In your case - this is the format when using {0:d} - MM/dd/YYYY.

Please let me know what the desired end result is and I will happily guide you toward the correct approach. I'm looking forward to your reply.

Sorry for some reason I didn't get an email saying there was a message reply.

The issue is that my local time (PC) is "dd/MM/", which is not being respected in my app showing 9/17/2017 or the  sample app grid columns, although the format at the bottom of the app is respecting the correct format for min/max values.

Regards,
Maurice
