How to bind TimeSpan value to Grid column

We cannot bind the Timespan value directly to the grid columns. This is a known limitation due to the fact that there is no Timespan datatype in Javascript. Also the .Net JavascriptSerailizer will serializes the TimeSpan object to Complex object, and hence trying to bind the Timespan value directly in grid columns will display the column value as [object Object].

In such cases, we can use the Column template feature of the grid to display the TimeSpan values in desired format.

For example we can use the following Jsrender custom converter to format the timespan value.


In the following code snippets, we have demonstrated, how to use the column template to display the timespan value in grid.

Grid Initialization






The grid data has been returned from the below function.


The output will be as follows.

Good day. Updated JQuery.globalize of ver. 1.0.0 does not use Globalize.format(val, "D2") anymore - https://github.com/jquery/globalize/blob/master/doc/migrating-from-0.x.md#globalizeformat
