I am following the examples from the wensite but the following configuration still displays the currency in US Dollars.  Is there something else I need to specify in addition to the culture?  Thanks!

$("#currency").kendoNumericTextBox({

format: "c",

culture: "de-DE",

decimals: 3

});

Hello Gary,

Did you include the culture script in the page? Please verify that the it is loaded correctly and let me know if the issue still persists.

Thank you so much.  No I had completely missed that step.

My page is reading a data set and populating controls with the values from the dataset.  I do not know what the culture is until I start reading the data.  If any of the data contains a money value, there will also be a linked currency record with info about that particular currency.  It has the code like USD and the name like US Dollar but no culture.

Is there a way to add the script reference dynamically so that I can do it after I know what currency I am working with.

Thanks!

Hello Gary,

You can load the JavaScript file on demand (check this stackoverflow thread).
Please make sure that the culture js file is loaded before initialization of the widget.
