    I am getting a warning in the browser console (Chrome) with kendo date picker.


    I am not setting date format to "yyyy-MM-dd". I have even tried to set up date format in the cshtml page for the kendo date picker.

    @(Html.Kendo().DatePickerFor(m => m.StartDate)

    Is this a default date format with date pciker? How can I change it?

    Hello Raja,

    The described warning is due the validation that Chrome performs. It does allow only one specific format / value *yyyy-MM-dd" to put in when the input is of type "date". In general, we generate an input element with type "date" and then on the client we change it to type="text" in order to allow different formatted values (e.g. MM/dd/yyyy).

    If you would like to avoid the warnings, just set the type of the input explicitly to "text":
    @(Html.Kendo().DatePickerFor(m => m.StartDate)
               .HtmlAttributes(new { type = "text" })

    The side effect of this action is that the input will not be of date type if JavaScript is disabled (graceful degradation).
