How can I retrieve the date range of the current Kendo UI Scheduler view?

Solution

The following example demonstrates how to achieve the desired scenario.

<div id="example">
    <div id="scheduler"></div>
    <div class="box wide">
        <h4>Console log</h4>
        <div class="console"></div>
    </div>
</div>
<script>
$(function() {
    function scheduler_view_range(e) {
        var view = e.sender.view();

        // The view has:
        // A startDate method which returns the start date of the view.
        // An endDate method which returns the end date of the view.

        $(".console").append("<p>" + kendo.format("view:: start: {0:d}; end: {1:d};", view.startDate(), view.endDate()) + "</p>");
    }

    $("#scheduler").kendoScheduler({
        date: new Date("2013/6/13"),
        startTime: new Date("2013/6/13 7:00"),
        height: 400,
        timezone: "Etc/UTC",
        views: [
            "day",
            { type: "week", selected: true },
            "month",
            "agenda",
            "timeline"
        ],
        navigate: function(e) {
          $(".console").append("<p><strong>Navigated from:</strong></p>");
          scheduler_view_range(e);
        },
        dataBound: function(e) {
          $(".console").append("<p><strong>Navigated to:</strong></p>");
          scheduler_view_range(e);
        },
        dataSource: {
            batch: true,

                    }
                }
            },
