Guys,

The declarative client databind is working fine.
My problem occurs when formatting a number ex. (DataFormatString=[0:N2])
I'm from Brazil and here the group separator is "." and decimal separator is ",".
How can I set the culture or format the data correctly on RadGrid?

Regards,

Henrique

Pavlina,

I'm using a client-side databind.
I know that using datasource, such AccessDataSource, works perfectly.
To be more specific:
http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/09-02-09/RadTips_Episode_13_Using_Declarative_Client-Side_Databinding_in_the_RadGrid_for_ASP_NET_AJAX_Part_1.aspx

        <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" 
            AllowPaging="True"     
            AutoGenerateColumns="False"        
            EnableViewState="False" 
            PageSize="15"  
            Skin="Black"
            <ClientSettings> 
                <DataBinding Location="BindDataOnClient.aspx"  
                    SelectCountMethod="GetProductCount"  
                    SelectMethod="GetProducts"
                </DataBinding> 
            </ClientSettings> 
            <MasterTableView>                
                <Columns>    
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Name"  
                        HeaderText="Product"   
                        UniqueName="ProductName"
                    </telerik:GridBoundColumn> 
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="CategoryName" 
                        HeaderText="Category"  
                        UniqueName="Category"
                    </telerik:GridBoundColumn> 
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Price" 
                        DataFormatString="[0:c]"  
                        HeaderText="Price"  
                        UniqueName="UnitPrice"
                    </telerik:GridBoundColumn> 
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="UnitsInStock"   
                        HeaderText="Units"  
                        UniqueName="UnitsInStock"
                    </telerik:GridBoundColumn> 
                </Columns> 
            </MasterTableView> 
        </telerik:RadGrid>         
 

Try to change your culture to pt-BR and see if column Price changes.

Regards,

Henrique

Hello Henrique,

Can you please try setting RadScriptManager's EnableScriptGlobalization and EnableScriptLocalization properties to "true". Similar to the code snippet bellow:
ASPX:
 <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" EnableScriptLocalization="true" 
            EnableScriptGlobalization="true" runat="server">  
        </telerik:RadScriptManager> 

ScriptManager.EnableScriptGlobalization Property
Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the ScriptManager control renders script that supports parsing and formatting of culture-specific information.

ScriptManager.EnableScriptLocalization Property
Gets or sets a value that indicates whether theScriptManager control renders localized versions of script files.

I hope this helps.

Pavlina

The Datasource type and mode using for de DataBind ..(i' using a javascript to invoke a Webservice query and doing manually the dataBind on client) is important to the correct globalization?

I have correctly configured the Culture, the flag actives in the ScriptManager, and al the things, but the numbers are displaying in en-US format.

Thanks

In the forum only images can be attached. If you want to attach a sample project you need to open a support ticket.

Ok , no problem.

Finally, the error was my mistake.

I'm creating a RadGrid dinamically, setting the EnableLocalization and EnableGlobalization to true and did not worked, but I've been missed asign the DataFormatString on the column dinamically created. Before that, the grid mantains the direct value inject of value to the cell and do not make a "String.localeFormat"  to transform the value.

thnks.
