    Hi

    Please fix the number formatting for culture en-ZA as it is incorrect and not consistant with af-ZA. The af-ZA culture file has the correct formating.

    kendo.culture.en-ZA.js Kendo UI Web v2012.2.710 uses i.e. a comma for the decimal point and a space for the thousands separator.
    The error is for decimals, percentage and currency.

    kendo.culture.af-ZA.js Kendo UI Web v2012.2.710 has the correct formating.


    Thanks
    Gareth

    Hi Gareth,

     
    The culture scripts are generated based on the .NET culture information. According to it the decimal separator for the "en-ZA" should be "." and the group separator should be " ". According to Windows regional settings these are the correct symbols. IBM claims that the decimal separator should be "," and group separator should be " ". I will ask you to provide an official statement, where the correct regional settins are defined. Thus I will be able to apply the correct settins.

    All the best,

    Hi Georgi

    You are quite right saying that both Microsoft have used the decimal separator to "," and thousands separator " " for currency.

    However this is only true for Windows 7 previous versions (Vista, XP and 2000) use decimal separator to "." and thousands separator ",". See National Language Support (NLS) API Reference http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb896001.aspx

    With IBM you reference Lotus Notes Forms version 3.5.1 which specifies the decimal separator to "," and thousands separator " " for currency. The documentation for Verion 3 of Lotus Notes specifies the decimal separator to "." and thousands separator "," for currency.

    So basically someone changed it somewhere and the rest of us in South Africa appear to be none the wiser :)

    I appreciate that you are unable to make any changes until I can provide a standardised source for the formatting. I will need to investigate why a change was made.


    Thank you for your assistance.
    Gareth
