Hi ,

I have this problem where the DateTime parameter is linked to the filter of a tablix.  In the Preview mode after Selecting the Parameter a few times the error will occur as shown below.

Is there any progress on the issue.  I think I might have got to the thing that is causing the issue.  My system dateTime format is set to GB ie dd-mm-yyyy.  The parameter  for datetime will always show the US date format so everytime you select something like 01/24/2018  the error will appear, meaning any day that is greater then 12 will cause error.  

Is there a fix ? Thank you.

Hi Albert, 
We have provided the workaround support to load the report parameter based on locale culture. Please follow the below steps to apply the fix in your Report Server Application.

{{InatalledLocation}}:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.Web\ Scripts\EssentialJS\i18n\ 
{{InatalledLocation}}:\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.Web\  Scripts\EssentialJS\i18n\ 
4.Paste the downloaded localetext script file only into the below locations as shown in below snap. 
 {{InatalledLocation}}:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.Web\ Scripts\Localization\reportviewer 
{{InatalledLocation}}:\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.Web\ Scripts\Localization\reportviewer 
5. Refer the pasted file reference in to “ReportViewer.cshtml” file like below from the below locations as shown in below code example and snap.   
    {{InatalledLocation}}:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.Web\Views\FileRender

    <link rel='nofollow' href="@Url.Content("~/Content/Styles/EssentialJS/reportviewer/bootstrap-theme/ej.reportviewer.min.css")" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> 
    @Styles.Render(DeviceDetection.IsMobile ? "~/styles/file-render-report-mobile" : "~/styles/file-render-report") 
    @Scripts.Render(DeviceDetection.IsMobile ? "~/scripts/report-render-mobile" : "~/scripts/report-render") 
              <script src="~/Scripts/EssentialJS/i18n/ej.culture.@string.Concat(language,".min.js")"></script> 
        var getLinkReportName = "@ViewBag.ItemName"; 
6. create the en-GB folder add messages.po file to load the server with culture in below server installed locations as shown in below snap. 
{{InatalledLocation}}:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.Web\ locale 
{{InatalledLocation}}:\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.Web\locale 
Please find the below en-GB folder with messages.po file.

Thank you for the update and it worked for the Report Viewer but the designer still does not work when the date is greater then 12, for example 14/Aug/2019.   Also the display in the designer field is also in US format.

Hi Albert, 

We were able to reproduce the mentioned culture issue in our Report Designer. We will fix this issue and it will be reflected in our upcoming Report Platform release which is estimated to be rolled out on first week of the September 2019.
