I've tried a multitude of options, but the ones that don't throw errors, I get "/Date(16400...." as the results

Here are some of the tries.

columns.Add().Field("StartDate").Title("Start Date").Template("#:kendo.toString(StartDate,'MM/dd/yyyy')#").Width("150px");

columns.Add().Field("StartDate").Title("Start Date").Template("#:data.StartDate.ToString('MM/dd/yyyy')#").Width("150px");

columns.Add().Field("StartDate").Title("Start Date").Template("#= kendo.toString(StartDate, 'MM/dd/yyyy')#").Width("150px");

 

I did see the one user voice asking for a "Format" method for MCCB as getting the escape correct is difficult but didn't give any examples.

Hi Doug,

 

Thank you for contacting us about this matter.

Can you try the .ClientTemplate instead of the server .Template and see if this resolves the issue? You can also try using the .Format() property directly:

Only options are HeaderTemplate and Template, clienttemplate does exist in columnbuilder.   Actual message "CS1061 MultiColumnComboBoxColumnBuilder does not contain a definition for 'clienttemplate' and no accessible extension method"

Hi Doug,

 

Yeah, you are correct. Sorry for that syntax mistake. Here is the proper configuration:

 columns.Add().Field("OrderDate").Title("OrderDate").Template("#= kendo.toString(kendo.parseDate(OrderDate, 'M/d/yyyy h:mm:ss tt'), 'M/d/yyyy h:mm:ss tt') #");
Try to use this approach -#= ... #

And the Date is displayed as expected:

I have also prepared a sample MVC project for demonstration. Feel free to run it and let me know if it helps you.
