    I'm using Telerik for ASP.NET Core Wrappers, setting culture and format for column.

    Display format is correct according to culture, the problem is that when I edit the field, format is always in English culture, with dot separator for decimal. When I save it, it considers the culture and ignore the dot because it is not the culture decimal separator.


    DisplayMode.PNG - Ok

    EditMode.PNG - Using dot as decimal separator - Not Ok

    DisplayModeAfterChange - 20.6 is recognized as 206



    <script type="text/javascript">



    columns.Bound(p => p.PrecoDeVenda).Width(120).Format("{0: R'$' #,###,##0.##}")



    .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Model(model =>



    columns.Bound(p => p.PrecoDeVenda).Width(120).Format("{0: R'$' #,###,##0.##}")

    I am using Telerik version 2020.1.114 and tried with [DataType("Number")] on the column but no change.

    Hi Daniel,

    I noticed that you have submitted the same query in a ticket, as I have already answered in the ticket, I will post the reply here as well in case someone else has the same question.


    The default editor of the grid is a plain input element. Thus, formatting is not supported with it. If you need to format the value in edit mode, you will have to create a custom editor template which contains a NumericTextBox with a specified format setting.

    In other words, in the ~/Views/Shared/EditorTemplates folder, add a view with a name "Number.cshtml" and within that view create a NumericTextBox as follows:

                .Format("c2" ) // set format here

    Please note that you will also have to decorate the field of the model with the UIHint attribute to specify that this view is its editor.

    Hi, Georgi,

    Yes, it is already solved, thank you.

    For anyone having the same problem, the code is missing this at the start of the cshtml file:

    @model double?


    And missing one x:

    @(Html.Kendo().NumericTextBoxFor(x=> x)
                .Format("c2" ) // set format here       )
