As far as I know I have to reference JS-library 'kendo.culture.de-DE.min.js' and afterwards execute 'kendo.culture("de-DE")' to use culture specific formatting, even when using the MVC wrappers, right?

But do we actually have to use the Format() function for every field (numeric column in a grid) to show the correct number format? Why does it not apply the format automatically after already setting the kendo culture? Or do I have to tell kendo otherwise?

Hi Stefan,

While displaying the values of the item fields the Grid will simply executes the toString() JavaScript method. It will not take into account the type configured in the DataSource Model for that field. That is why, in order to format the numerics properly according to the current Kendo culture, you would need to use the Format("{0:n}") configuration method for that respective column of the Grid.
