I'm trying to use the Date Picker on a page Insert page

The View contains

 @Html.EJ().DatePickerFor(model => model.DateOfBirth)

and the mode includes the property

Datetime? DateOfBirth

But i get this error

Method not found: 'Syncfusion.JavaScript.DatePickerPropertiesBuilder Syncfusion.JavaScript.DatePickerExtension.DatePickerFor(Syncfusion.MVC.EJ.EssentialJavaScriptFor`1<!!0>, System.Linq.Expressions.Expression`1<System.Func`2<!!0,!!1>>)'.

Note: first time using the SyncFusion MVC tools - followed the setup guide and can confirm that a grid loads and binds correctly so i believe i've setup the mvc controls okay

Hi Brian,
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support,
We have analyzed your query and we are unable to reproduce the reported issue in our end. But we suspect the issue may be caused due to the may be the Date Picker control properties are accessed in  controller page without specifying the Syncfusion JavaScript name space in a controller.
Please refer the below code example:


using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Web;

using System.Web.Mvc;

using Syncfusion.JavaScript;

using Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models;

using WebApplication6.Models;

namespace WebApplication6.Controllers


    public class DatePickerController : Controller



        public ActionResult Index()


            Incident inc =new Incident();

            inc.SampleDate = DateTime.Now;

            DatePickerProperties dateobj = new DatePickerProperties();

            dateobj.Width = "200px";

            dateobj.DateFormat = "dd/MM/yyyy";

            ViewData["dateobj"] = dateobj;

            return View(inc);



We have prepared the simple sample with date picker for control. Please get the sample from below location.
