Hello,

I'm using a template for my tooltip, and I'd like to format the ${value} part of the template. Can you let me know how the syntax would look to format as say currency? Thanks

tooltip: {
    visible: true,
    template: "${category}<br />Claim Cost: ${value}"
}

Hello Philip,

To change the display format you can use the kendo.format method.
e.g.

tooltip: {
    visible: true,
    template: "#=category#<br />Claim Cost: #= kendo.format('{0:C}',value) #"
}

Thanks Petur...works great.

Is there a manual to everything that kendo.format can do, or can I compare it to a regular method such as string.format and assume it can do everything that string.format can do?

Hi Philip,

Yes kendo.format is similar to the c# string.Format method. For the moment there is no manual available.

Is it not possible to use custom format strings? (i.e: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0c899ak8.aspx )
From what I've been trying out, only the standard ones (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dwhawy9k.aspx) work.
