    I wish I could get as far as all the other users having issues with formatting dates, but I'm stuck right here. The Format method isn't working. My grid is still displaying a Json date looking like this /Date(1364927400000)/. My date field is actually a DateTimeOffset field and I really would rather use a format string like yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss tt K or yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss tt zzz, but /Date(1364927400000)/ is completely unacceptable.

    ​ @(Html.Kendo().Grid<UtiliPoleOfficeWeb.Models.JobPriorityModel>()
    .Columns(columns =>
    columns.Bound(p => p.Id).Hidden(true);
    columns.Bound(p => p.Description).Width(150);
    columns.Bound(p => p.Priority).Width(100);
    columns.Bound(p => p.Owner).Width(100);
    columns.Bound(p => p.Started).Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy}");
    columns.Bound(p => p.Inspector).Width(150);
    columns.Bound(p => p.Completed).Width(425).Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy}");
    columns.Bound(p => p.FRInspector).Width(140).Title("Field Review Inspector");
    columns.Bound(p => p.FRCompleted).Width(425).Title("Field Review Completed");
    columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); }).Width(100);
    }) . . .

    Please help.

    Hi Timothy,

    The problem is caused by the fact that the dates that you pass to the grid are not actually of type date. I would suggest you to check the following forum thread, where an issue similar to yours is discussed, please check it out and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us:
