    The easiest solution for you case is to iterate over each data and convert the date string into a Date object but since you have a very large amount of data, it may not be possible.
    Other solution is to use the formatItem event. This event is fired for each cell so you can convert the string to date object by using this event. Please refer to the sample link below for reference:

    Sorry, I must have missed this. Unfortunately, there is no solution for this issue. There is only one solution for your main issue that is to iterate over each value and convert it from string to date manually. The previous solution also does the same but it converts string to date for the visible data only so that the performance is not affected. But since, there are still some data left which have not been converted, they will be displayed on the filter editor.
    So, ultimately, you will have to iterate over each data for conversion. You can also add a spinner (refer to the link at the bottom) while converting the data so that the user will think the data is still being loaded.


    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    Hi Team,

    Can we achieve this using any kind of pipe which can be written in a custom way.
