Filtering Is Not Properly Persisted after Saving and Loading the State of the Grid

The filters of the Grid are not correctly persisted after its state is saved and loaded. How can I properly persist the filtering and avoid the rendering of incorrect data in the Grid?


The JSON.stringify() method that is internally used by the kendo.stringify() method utilizes the Date.prototype.toISOString function which represents time in unmodified UTC format.


Programmatically apply the time offset before the filter is set again.

    <div id="example">
      <div class="box wide">
        <a href="#" class="k-button" id="save">Save State</a>
        <a href="#" class="k-button" id="load">Load State</a>
      <div id="grid"></div>

        $(document).ready(function () {
            dataSource: {
              type: "odata",
              transport: {
                read: ""
              pageSize: 20
            height: 550,
            groupable: true,
            sortable: true,
            reorderable: true,
            resizable: true,
            columnMenu: true,
            pageable: {
              refresh: true,
              pageSizes: true,
              buttonCount: 5
            columns: [{
              field: "MeetingID",
              title: "Meeting",
              width: 250,
              locked: true
            }, {
              field: "Start",
              title: "Start",
              width: 350,
              type: "date",
              format: "{0:MM/dd/yy hh:mmtt}"
            }, {
              field: "End",
              title: "End",
              width: 350,
              type: "date",
              format: "{0:MM/dd/yy hh:mmtt}"
            }, {
              field: "RoomID",
              width: 450

          var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");

          $("#save").click(function (e) {
            localStorage["kendo-grid-options"] = kendo.stringify(grid.getOptions());

          $("#load").click(function (e) {
            var options = localStorage["kendo-grid-options"];
            if (options) {
              var parsedOptions = JSON.parse(options)
              if(parsedOptions.dataSource.filter != undefined && parsedOptions.dataSource.filter.filters != undefined){
                for (let i = 0; i<parsedOptions.dataSource.filter.filters.length; i++ ){
                  if(parsedOptions.dataSource.filter.filters[i].field = "Start"){
                    // Parse the date string.
                    var newTime = new Date(parsedOptions.dataSource.filter.filters[i].value);
                    // Set the offset to the date.
                    kendo.timezone.apply(newTime, 0);
                    parsedOptions.dataSource.filter.filters[i].value = newTime
