Good Afternoon.

I have a problem when i am dragging a date time column to the group drop area when the column having custom format.
Also I have problem when i am trying to export to a pdf file when i have a date time column with custom format.

It raises error: TypeError: value.getDate is not a function

<e-column field='OrderDate' headerText='OrderDate' type='date' width='120' [format]='formatOptions' [enableGroupByFormat]='true'></e-column>

this.formatOptions = { type: 'dateTime', skeleton: 'short' };
this.formatOptions = { type: 'dateTime', format: 'dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm:ss a' };

Thank you.

Hi Isaias, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We suspect that you are binding date column value as string type but grid expects value as date object which might be the cause of the reported behavior. So we suggest you to parse the grid data with DataUtil.parse.parseJson method.  . 
import {  DataUtil} from '@syncfusion/ej2-data'; 
    selector: 'app-root', 
    templateUrl: 'a<ejs-grid #grid [dataSource]='data' allowPaging='true' [pageSettings]='pageSettings' [toolbar]='toolbar' (toolbarClick)='toolbarClick($event)' [allowExcelExport]='true' [allowPdfExport]='true' [allowGrouping]="true"> 
           <e-column field='OrderDate' headerText='OrderDate' type='date' width='120' [format]='formatOptions' [enableGroupByFormat]='true'></e-column> 
            .  .  . 
export class AppComponent { 
    public ngOnInit(): void { 
        this.data = DataUtil.parse.parseJson([{ 
      .   .  . 
this.formatOptions = { type: 'dateTime', skeleton: 'short' }; 
        .  .  . 
Please get back to us if you need any further assistance on this.

Hi Pavithra,

Now when I am dragging the date time column I have not problem anymore with grouping.

But the problem with grid exporting when date time column is grouped still remains.
