MVC UK Date Issues

I have recently been working on a MVC / Bootstrap project, which is UK only.

Despite adding the following code to web.config, filling out a form with a DateTime in it still failed on a parsing error.

I had to set a custom model binder, because by default MVC doesn’t look at the current ui culture when model binding:

This has implications if you are using dates in URL’s, which I am not on this project, so it will suffice for now.

I also had to change the jquery validation, I installed the Jquery.Validation.AdditionalMethods nuget package and included the additional-methods.js script in my jQueryVal bundle:

I get a feeling that this could be improved, but on my UK only site, I think its good for now. Note to self: read up on the way that URLs and model binding works. There may be a more elegant solution in there somewhere…

    thanks for this I’ve been banging my head against keyboard for a week on what should have been a simple issue. I managed to get the client validation solved but didn’t realise MVC was ignoring ui culture too.
