In the demos I was able to see something like 

.Format("MMMM yyyy")

But I have been unable to find the valid values for the string input or documentation on the Format method itself. I am obviously looking in the wrong place. Where should I look?

Thank you.

Hi Kevin,

These are the articles which will clear up the questions regarding the format configuration:
https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid/configuration/columns.format
https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/kendo/methods/format
https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/globalization/numberformatting

I hope this will prove helpful.

Thank you. I was unable to find what are the  options. Like what does YYYY mean? Or is MMM an option? What about MMMM? In the context of a date picker does the 'format' specify the format once a date from the picker has been selected?

Hello Kevin,

These abbreviations are not Telerik specific, but rather representations acknowledged globally, e.g. Microsoft:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/base-types/standard-date-and-time-format-strings

Four times "y" for example means the year in four digits:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/base-types/custom-date-and-time-format-strings
