In general, the format depends on the current Kendo culture. If you need to change just the currency symbol and keep the rest of the culture settings then you can override the currency symbol value:
culture = kendo.culture();
"[custom currency symbol]"
Note that you will need to override the symbol before the widget initialization.
The other option is to define
a custom culture and configure
the widget to use it.
