Hi,

I am using Kendo UI Complete v2013.2.918.  I have to convert the date column data into the language specific date format which is based on browser's "Language Preference"  and i have to show the dates in customized filter menu in the same format.

Please suggest a way to achieve this.

Thanks,
Raj

Hello Raj,

Kendo UI widgets' date and number formats depend on the widget's culture setting, or the global Kendo UI culture setting. In order to apply a particular culture on the page, you have to register the corresponding culture-specific Javascript file (provided in the Kendo UI distribution), or create a custom one of your own.

Please note that:

+ Kendo UI is not able to detect the browser settings client-side. However, you can read the browser's Accept-Language request header on the server and generate the appropriate Javascript statement to apply the correct culture on the client.

+ Kendo UI culture influences date/number formats inside widgets such as Date/Time pickers and Numeric textboxes. However, when displaying dates in the Grid, you will need to use a column template with a date format, according to your preferences, as shown here:

Please refer to our documentation for further details about setting and using cultures.
