Hello,
Our app displays many numbers and we often use the kendo.toString function according to https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/globalization/intl/numberformatting 
In some places we use it with the format ##,# (to display integers) and in others we use ##,#.00 to always print the decimal part.


Here are two examples:
kendo.toString(12345.10, "##,#”) >>”12,345"
kendo.toString(12345.10, "##,#.00”) >> "12,345.10"
In certain area we wish to be able and present integers as integers, and without the decimal part, and present floats with two decimal parts.
Clearly we cannot use any of the suggested format. Using ##,# only gives integers and ##,#.00 will turn 10 into 10.00 while we wish to keep it as 10


We also cannot use ##,#.## because we cannot allow only 1 decimal digit. The result of kendo.toString(10.1, "##,#.##”) is “10.1” but we must have it as “10.10” because we need either 0 decimal figures or 2.


Is there a format that can answer this need?

 

Thanks,

Ron.

Hello Ron,

I'm afraid that there is not format that could cover these cases at once. What I can suggest you is to check (if statement) the type of the number and depending on the case - use the needed format. e.g.:

(x % 1 !== 0) ? kendo.toString(x, "#.00") : kendo.toString(x, "#")

Hope this would help.
