How to specify formate for Date Row or Column

With the PivotGrid control is there a way to specify the format for a row or column that is a date value? Here is an example of how a row is currently displaying: "Tue May 10 2016 00:00:00 GMT0-0400 (Eastern Standard Time)". I would like for it to display as 05/10/2016.

Regards, Jeff

I'm sorry, but I can't find the solution. This post was created in 2016.

In your link, I can't see the solution, only my support tracks, but it is not mine.

Can you post the solution?

Hi Manolo, 

We regret you to inform that, for relational data source, it is not possible to change row/column headers to required format in PivotGrid internally. But, it can be achieved in sample level by following ways. 
1.       You can directly bind the raw data-set (JOSN data) in desire format for date field to display in PivotGrid. (or) 
2.       You can use the “load” event to convert the desired date format of the datasource data (raw data) and bind it to PivotGrid to change the formatting in desired headers. Please find the below code example to achieve this. 
Sample Code: 
    function onLoad(args) { 
        for (var i = 0; i < pivot_dataset.length; i++) { 
            var val = (pivot_dataset[i])["Date"];     // Select field to set desired date format 
            val = new Date(val); 
            //ej.widgetBase.formatting("{0:" + DateTime format string + "}", value, localization); 
            pivot_dataset[i].Date = ej.widgetBase.formatting("{0:" + "MM'/'dd'/'yyyy" + "}", val, "es-ES");   // To convert the date format as per the applied format string and localization 
        args.model.dataSource.data = pivot_dataset; 

Thanks and Regards, 
Ramesh G
