    To dynamically change the language of my application i' trying to use databinding to a viewmodel. It works great on labels and simple texts, but when i bind a button with e.g.

    <a data-role="button" data-bind="text: i18n.connect" data-click="app.connectClicked">TEST</a>

    I get an error message:
    The text binding is not supported by the Button widget

    Is there a workaround for this?

    Hello Peter,

    Such binding is not supported out of the box with Kendo UI. However using a custom binder you can achieve such functionality. Please check this example of a possible implementation:
