Issue: Date Filtering not working
Background: We are sending up dates as strings. Yes, I could change this, but this would impact many things and cause a lot of other things to have to change.
The raw data format is yyyy-mm-dd.
Customers are requesting we change the display of the dates to MM/dd/yyyy.
This is working fine by setting the template to this:
"#= kendo.toString(kendo.parseDate(" + thedefs[ischema].index + ", 'yyyy-MM-dd'), 'MM/dd/yyyy') #";
What does not work is the filtering. Because the datatype is string, we get the string based operators.
I switched the datatype on the field (only in the grid, not the data) to "date" and that partly works. It does show the date operators and we get a date picker. But, when you filter any date, nothing is returned.
I dont really want to write a custom date filter. Are there any other options?
If not, can you point me in the right direction to a custom filter override?
