    Hi there, 

    Is there any difference globalisation/culture changes between the following versions: Kendo UI Complete v2013.1.319 and  Kendo UI v2017.1.118 ?

    After upgrading I started getting the error: "  The field (insert field name) must be a date."

    Do I need to upgrade the JQuery Version? Currently using v1.9.1

    I'm setting the culture the same way. Using a script inside the page: 



    The code for creating the DatePicker hasn't changed: 

    @(Html.Kendo().DatePickerFor(model => model.DateOfTesting)
        .Format("dd MMM yyyy")
        .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width:100%" })
    @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.DateOfTesting)


    The scripts on my page are the same: 

    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery.validate.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery.validate.unobtrusive.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>


    The scripts on the Layout Page are the same

    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery.min.js")"></script>
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/kendo.web.min.js")"></script>
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/Cultures/kendo.culture.en.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>
    @*Loading Multiple culture files in the Layout Page*@
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/Cultures/kendo.culture.en-US.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/Cultures/kendo.culture.en-GB.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>
    @*and so on for each culture*@
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/Cultures/kendo.culture.CULTURE .min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>

    Note: The last line is just an example


    If I revert to the previous version ir works properly, if I upgrade then it doesn't with the exact same code.

    Any idea?

    Thank you

    I forgot to add that I have this on my $(document).ready function, but the code isn't reaching this point. 

    $(document).ready(function () {
        var validator = $("#MyForm").kendoValidator().data("kendoValidator");
        $("input[type=submit]").click(function (e) {
            if (!validator.validate()) {
            } else {
                $("input[type=submit]").attr("disabled", "disabled");
                window.onbeforeunload = null;


    And there is a way to get this working by using a suggestion from another post,

        kendo.ui.validator.rules.mvcdate = function (input) {
          return input.val() === "" || kendo.parseDate(input.val(), "dd MMM yyyy") !== null;


    what is confusing/bothering me is why it works with the previous version...

    Hello Hugo,

    I'm glad to hear that the issue is resolved.

    As for the specific changes, as there are nearly 4 years between those versions, many new changes were made.

    Also, the culture formats may be changed for the specific culture.

    If additional investigation is needed, please provide a fully runnable example, so I can inspect the specific reason for the issue.
