Use the Format property to format the Date Edit's value in edit mode when the editor is focused, and use the DisplayFormat property to format the editor’s display value when the editor is not focused. If the DisplayFormat property is not set, the Format is applied in display and edit modes.

If you add a time section to the Date Edit, you can also use the Format property to format the time value.

The following example demonstrates how to apply the full date long time format in display mode and the full date short time format in edit mode:

<DxDateEdit @bind-Date="@DateTimeValue" 
            TimeSectionVisible="true" 
            DisplayFormat="F" 
            Format="f">
</DxDateEdit>

@code {
    DateTime DateTimeValue { get; set; } = DateTime.Now;
}

Scroll Picker Mode

If the datepicker is displayed as a scroll picker, use the ScrollPickerFormat property to define a date format for each scroll picker part (day, month, and year).

<DxDateEdit @bind-Date="@DateTimeValue" PickerDisplayMode="DatePickerDisplayMode.ScrollPicker" 
            ScrollPickerFormat="dddd MMMM yyyy"></DxDateEdit>

@code {
    DateTime DateTimeValue { get; set; } = DateTime.Now;
}
