Query builder - date column custom format


I have updated to ej2@17.4.43 version. I have query builder with date and custom format "d. M. y". It worked before update, but it does not and throws error with message "Error: Format options or type given must be invalid". I can't figure out how to change format to make it work. Can you provide any information?

Hi Stefan, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support, 
We have checked your reported query. We would like to let you know that if you load your culture file, the Querybuilder is loaded based on that culture file. You don’t need to specify the format. Please find the below code snippet: 
"dependencies": { 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-querybuilder": "*", 
        "cldr-data": "^36.0.0" 
    map: { 
        app: 'app', 
        //Syncfusion packages mapping 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-base": "syncfusion:ej2-base/dist/ej2-base.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-data": "syncfusion:ej2-data/dist/ej2-data.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-inputs": "syncfusion:ej2-inputs/dist/ej2-inputs.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-buttons": "syncfusion:ej2-buttons/dist/ej2-buttons.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons": "syncfusion:ej2-splitbuttons/dist/ej2-splitbuttons.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-lists": "syncfusion:ej2-lists/dist/ej2-lists.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-popups": "syncfusion:ej2-popups/dist/ej2-popups.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-calendars": "syncfusion:ej2-calendars/dist/ej2-calendars.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns": "syncfusion:ej2-dropdowns/dist/ej2-dropdowns.umd.min.js", 
        "@syncfusion/ej2-querybuilder": "syncfusion:ej2-querybuilder/dist/ej2-querybuilder.umd.min.js", 
        "cldr-data": "npm:cldr-data", 
        "plugin-json": "npm:systemjs-plugin-json/json.js" 
    meta: { 
        '*.json': { loader: 'plugin-json' } 
    packages: { 
        'app': { main: 'app', defaultExtension: 'js' }, 
        'cldr-data': { main: 'index.js', defaultExtension: 'js' } 
import { QueryBuilder, ColumnsModel, ChangeEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-querybuilder'; 
import { DatePicker } from '@syncfusion/ej2-calendars'; 
import { loadCldr, setCulture } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base'; 
declare var require: any; 
    let qryBldrObj: QueryBuilder = new QueryBuilder({ 
        width: '70%', 
        columns: columnData, 
        change: (args: ChangeEventArgs) => { 
In Querybuilder component we will dynamically render the other components. So that we set the culture in change event. 
For your convenience we have prepared a sample. Please find the below sample link:
