Hi,

I have requirements that date should be presented in the browser based on the user system settings in "Region and Language -> Formats -> Short Date", so in US it should be "M/d/yyyy" and in Bulgaria it should be "d.M.yyyy".  I know that Kendo UI supports localization, but I could not figure out how to do that.

This date should be presented in grid and I am using ASP.NET MVC 4.0 with Kendo UI MVC grid control.

Thanks for help.

Thanks.

Hello Vlad,

I suggest you to check the "getting started > globalization"part of the documentation.

http://docs.kendoui.com/getting-started/framework/globalization/overview

In MVC you can use the following logic to load the localization script depending on the current thread culture or use the same approach to load it from other variable.

@{
    var culture = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.ToString();
}
 
    <script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/cultures/kendo.culture." + culture + ".min.js")"></script>
