DateTime Format

28 Feb 20221 minute to read

DateTime format is a way of representing the date and time value in different string format in textbox.

By default the DateTimePicker’s format is based on the culture. You can also set the own custom format by using the format property.

Once the date format property has been defined it will be common to all the cultures.

To know more about the date and time format standards, refer to the Internationalization Date Time Format section.

The following example demonstrates the DateTimePicker with the custom format (yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm).

<ejs-datetimepicker id="datetimepicker" value="@ViewBag.value" format="yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm" placeholder="Enter date and time"></ejs-datetimepicker>
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc;

        public IActionResult DateTimeFormat()
            ViewBag.value = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year,DateTime.Now.Month,14);
            return View();
