The date time picker doesn't work with european date and time format. The time dropdown shows AM/PM format but the field populates properly with 24 hours format.

Code and screen shots attached.

Hello,

 
You need to define the time format of the drop-down popup.

I have tried that too. I used the code below and still get the correct format in the dropdown but not in the input field.

 $("#datetimepicker").kendoDateTimePicker({interval: 60, dateFormat: "dd/MM/yyyy", timeFormat: "HH:mm"});

Hello fred,

 
Everything works fine on my end. Here is a simple jsBin demo, which shows that everything works as expected.

Thanks. that works but I find the documentation lacking clarity. Why is the time included int the "format" parameter is there is a "timeFormat" parameter? What does upper case signify? What does "tt" mean? What is the significance of the "ss" as in second? They are never displayed.

Hi,

 
The format option is used to format the DateTimePickers value and display it in the input element. The timeFormat option is used to define the format of the items in the drop-down popup. There are two options, because you may want different format for the drop-down popup then the default's culture short time format. I believe that the pointed links describes well the purpose of the options.

As to the formats I strongly suggest you check this help topic (and other related help articles), which will shed more light on your last question.

All the best,
