Json Data format issue /Date() in Asp.net MVC

I struggled bit with getting over to this Json date format issue. I got the lead with Hanselman . Scott tried his best to point to right direction but all he was intended towards web api 2. I was having a issue with asp.net mvc underlying Json.net.


After working on this for an hour I started getting lot of solution via stackoverflow and many other blog post.


We can handle this date issue at client side but I personally want to handle everything at server side.


I liked Bipin Joshi Solution, which is kind of straight forward or straight cut solution.

                response.ContentEncoding = ContentEncoding;
            if (Data != null)
            {
                JsonTextWriter writer = new JsonTextWriter(response.Output) { Formatting = Newtonsoft.Json.Formatting.Indented };
                JsonSerializer serializer = JsonSerializer.Create(new JsonSerializerSettings());
                serializer.Serialize(writer, Data);
                writer.Flush();
            }
        }
    }
