    Apparently I can't format my series tooltips to human readable date using DataFormatString.
    I tried {0:d} and many other date formatting but the tooltips always show up as 1399852800000 for example.

    My RadHtmlChart/ScatterLine contain multiple ScatterLineSeries added programmatically. Every item X value are DateTime converted to Unix time.
    My X-Axis has his Type set to date and apparently format correctly with "yyyy-MM-dd".

    Any help?

    Thank you.

    Hi Xavier,

    You must convert the value to DateTime prior to formatting it. For example:
    <TooltipsAppearance Color="White">
            #= kendo.format(\'{0:d/MM/yyyy}\', new Date(value.x)) #,  #=kendo.format(\'{0:C0}\',value.y)#

    More information on the matter is available in Programmatic Creation Of SeriesItems With DateTime help article.

    Could I also ask you when you open forum threads for the future to choose the right product (i.e., RadHtmlChart control and not RadChart)?

    Thank you for your cooperation.
