I have a graph which is show solar irradiance vs. time (hour); users can select the location for which they want to see the graph. The category axis renders the times in local time (for me, that's CST).

How can I change the day/time displayed on the category axis to match the time zone where the data belongs (such as GMT, CET, etcetera).

Thanks.

Hi,

Depending on the format the dates will be treated as local or UTC. For example:

  <div id="chart-utc"></div>
  <div id="chart-local"></div>
  <script>
    $("#chart-utc").kendoChart({
      categoryAxis: {
        type: "date",
        categories: [
          "2013-01-01T10:00Z", "2013-01-01T12:00Z"
        ]
      }
    });
    
    $("#chart-local").kendoChart({
      categoryAxis: {
        type: "date",
        categories: [
          "2013-01-01T10:00", "2013-01-01T12:00"
        ]
      }
    });
  </script>


Live demo

Local dates are displayed without conversion. UTC dates will be converted to the browser time zone.

If I understand correctly, your scenario calls for using local dates. Please, let us know if this is not sufficient.
