    Has anyone tried to use the Kendo Slider to choose between date ranges?  

    Currently I am using month long millisecond steps and the tool tip template to display the date ranges.  However, I am having trouble updating the tick values using the format option.  

    Does anyone know how to format a number to date string using only a kendo format string? 

    Or does anyone know how to using templates or JS in the slider format string?

    I'm having the same problem. I have a slider that should be with date ranges, that on change will trigger a grid underneath it to show the particular data for that particular date. Since nobody answered your question I'm assuming you somehow manage to solve your issue. 
    I'd be very grateful if you offer any kind of solution.
    Best regards.

    Hi all!

    Did you get this working? We are having the same issue. A date range window (as seen in the dataviz stock chart widget) would also be really nice for us, but date range slider would do as well.

    Any updates on this?

    Hi guys,

    Kendo UI Slider is designed to work with numeric values, however it is possible to use it for date ranges in case you bind the widget to milliseconds instead of Date objects. For your convenience I prepared a simple jsBin example which demonstrates a possible implementation.
