Handle nullable datetime field in flexmonster grid

Carlos Perez Ruiz asked on August 24, 2020

I have a question.
I have a nullable datetime field in my datasource.
When i pass the data to the flexmonster compressor and the field is null, the compressor send empty value in the field value (attachment: “Compresso_Data_Sent.png”) but the grid show “invalid datetime” in the field (attachment: “invalid_date.png”).
I need to show empty value in the grid when the datetime field is null.
How can fix this?
(Flexmonster version: v2.8.2 and Compressor in .net)
Thanks for the help.

Hi Carlos,
Thank you for writing to us.
If you prefer not to display the “Invalid date” text when some dates are empty in the input data, it is recommended to change the default message to an empty string with the help of Flexmonster localization:

report: {
localization: {
"grid": {
"dateInvalidCaption": "",

For more information on component localization feel free to check out the following guide:
