I'm having some problems initializing the dateTimePicker.

a form come generated by my db and orm that populate a text input value.
The dateTimePicker does not read the "value" attribute and always put the current time as a starting value.

I have reproduced my problem in the attached file coming from the demo samples, just adding a value attribute and the corresponding dateTimeFormat.

I am missing something?

Hi Alain,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

To specify 24 hour time, the time format has to be HH:mm (capital letters for hours). So please use the date time format as ‘yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm’ and it will work. We have showcased in the following JS playground link please check it.


Please let us know if you have further queries.
