I'm trying to do localization for the upload widget using the bindings of the mvvm approach.

<input type="text" id="upload_field" data-role='upload' data-localization='{"select": local_select}' />

with local_select being a parameter from my observable object.

var uploadModel =  new kendo.data.ObservableObject({
local_select:"Izberi..."
});

which is turn bound - var kendoView = kendo.bind($("#portal_content"), uploadModel);

The expected result is to the input itself showing the content from the object model but it throws an error (undefined) and crashes everything after it.
If I try using the #= # approach it crashes yet again with saying it's an illegal token. Finally I wrote a string  data-localization='{"select": "Izberi..."}' and it works. It also works if I use any directly accessible js variable. Since I haven't had any significant problems binding any other values to other widgets so far (ok, there have been problems but mostly typos on my side :) ).

Is there something I'm doing wrong or does kendo have problems binding these values? I did at first thought that you don't have mvvm bindings so I created an extended widget out of upload.

kendo.data.binders.widget.localization.select = kendo.data.Binder.extend({
                    init: function (widget, bindings, options) {
                        //call the base constructor
                        kendo.data.Binder.fn.init.call(this, widget.element[0], bindings, options);
                    },
                    refresh: function () {
                        var that = this,
                        value = that.bindings["localization-select"].get(); //get the value from the View-Model
                        $(that.element).data("kendoRcgUpload").localization.select(value); //update the widget
                    }
});

But that hasn't worked out either. So I'm currently at a loss what else I could do - And I need to bind the value from the model since I need my code clean as a whistle :)

Since I can't edit - I accidentally pasted an older code sample:

This is the correct code used in my application:

kendo.data.binders.widget.localization = kendo.data.Binder.extend({
        init: function (widget, bindings, options) {
            //call the base constructor
            kendo.data.Binder.fn.init.call(this, widget.element[0], bindings, options);
        },
        refresh: function () {
            var that = this,
            value = that.bindings["localization"].get(); //get the value from the View-Model
            console.log(value)
            $(that.element).data("kendoRcgUpload").localization(value); //update the widget
        }
    });

Hello,

The data-localization option is not actually a binding, but a declarative initialization. It has access only to the global scope, but not to the model variables.
Creating a custom binding is definitely the way to go, but the problem is that the Upload can't update its localization strings once rendered.

Apologies for the caused inconvenience.
