I have a ListView control which uses a client template something like:

<script type="text/x-kendo-tmpl" id="paperlist-template">
  ...
  <div>${kendo.toString(PublicationDate, "dd MMMM yyyy")}</div>
  ...
</script>

If I construct the ListView using:

@(Html.Kendo().ListView(Model.Papers)...

everything works fine and the dates display correctly.  Model.Papers is an IEnumerable<PaperListItem>.  PaperListItem.PublicationDate is a C# DateTime.

However, if I construct the ListView using:

@(Html.Kendo().ListView<IEnumerable<PaperListItem>>()...

the dates come out like "/Date(1382050800000)/".

Why is that?

Hello Barrie,

You should use the type of the model as generic parameter for the ListViewBuilder:
Html.Kendo().ListView<PaperListItem>()
The enumeration does not have a property PublicationDate of type DateTime and therefore the type will not be known and the value will not be parsed.

Great, thanks.

What was confusing was that the other properties of PaperListItem worked just fine!
