    In a Column Chart, I am trying to format a date in a Tooltip's ClientTemplate and  I can't seem to figure it out.

    On the Y-Axis I have dollar amounts, on the X-Axis I have the 24 hours of the day (12am, 1am, 2am, ... 11pm). The X-Axis labels work fine (well, I wish I could lowercase the AM/PM, but that's another issue) using the following:

    <LabelsAppearance DataFormatString="htt" RotationAngle="0" />

    Unfortunately, when I use the following ToolTips template the X-Axis value renders as a long format date like "Tue Nov 11 2014 03:00:00 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time)" rather than "3AM":

    <TooltipsAppearance BackgroundColor="#ffffff" Color="#5ab7de">

    How do I get #=category= to format my date like this: 4PM?

    Well, to answer my own question. This took me forever to find in the documentation... because it's not in the documentation, rather it is on a demo page for Date Axis:

    #= kendo.format(\'{0:htt}\', category) #
