A field in my dataset has a date as string like "2019-01-26".
If I set the column as type="date", then it is parsed as date and displayed in my current Culture (here de-DE) as "
Mon Aug 26 2019 02:00:00 GMT+0200 (Mitteleuropäische Sommerzeit)".
So the grid is able to parse this date (without time) correctly.
But when I add a formatting to the column like format="dd.MM.yyyy", no record will be shown in the grid.
With formatting I have to add "T00:00:00" to my string for the grid to parse it correctly.
My string is a correct date as described in
and the grid is obviously able to parse it. This should also work, when a format is given.
