Date formatting with week day


I need to format the columns with date to display the weekday: "Th. 03.28.2019". 

How can I do this? What kind of 'format' string I should use?

{ field: 'Date', headerText: 'Date', width: 100, format: { type:'date', format:'dd.MM.yyyy' }, editType: 'datepickeredit', edit: { params: { format:'dd.MM.yyyy' }} },

Hi Mladen, 

Greetings from Syncfusion support. 

We can achieve your requirement using the format property of columns API in Grid. 

Refer the below code example. 

var data = new ej.data.DataManager(window.orderData).executeLocal(new ej.data.Query().take(15)); 
    var grid = new ej.grids.Grid({ 
        dataSource: data, 
        columns: [ 
            { field: 'OrderID', headerText: 'Order ID', width: 120, textAlign: 'Right' }, 
            { field: 'CustomerName', headerText: 'Customer Name', width: 150 }, 
            { field: 'OrderDate', headerText: 'Order Date', width: 130, format: {type:'date', format:'ccc dd/MM/yyyy'}, textAlign: 'Right' }, 
            { field: 'Freight', width: 120, format: 'C2', textAlign: 'Right' }, 
            { field: 'ShipCountry', headerText: 'Ship Country', width: 150 } 

We have prepared a simple sample in the following stackblitz link. 

Refer the help documentation.
