@Html.EditorFor displays mm/dd/yyyy rather than date

My model has a field, CloseDate, defined as datetime.

        [Display(Name = "Close date")]
        [DataType(DataType.Date)]
        public Nullable<System.DateTime> CloseDate { get; set; }

Open in new window


It's displayed on my Edit page as follows:

@Html.EditorFor(model => model.TargetedFundingCloseDate)

Open in new window


If I enter or select a date, and click Save, the value is saved to my database. However, when the record is again displayed in Edit, I see the same mm/dd/yyyy placeholder that I did when CloseDate was null; and if I click Save, my originally selected date is saved as null.

What can I do to get around this? Have I missed something basic?

Try..

[Display(Name = "Close date")]
[DataType(DataType.Date), DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:HH:mm MM/dd/yyyy}", ApplyFormatInEditMode = true)]
public DateTime CloseDate { get; set; }

Open in new window

Thank you - had missed something very basic, as suspected.
