Hi,

I need help on number formats in e.g. Kendo grid.
My number is 123456,78 and I need a format like 123.456,780.
In different threads I read formats like "{0:c}", "{0:0.000}", etc..
But I don't understand the formatting.
What means the 0 before the colon, and what possibilities I have to format the numbers?

Thanks for any help!

Did you check Number Formatting documentation? I think it might help you.
The c is for currency and depends on the culture (your language and country).
The 0.000 is the format where 0 is space for a digit while "." might be decimals separator or the group separator.
I.e:
If your culture is en-EN and you are displaying 1.234, your number will be one unit and two hundred thirty four thousands of unit BUT if your culture is de-DE, you are representing one thousand two hundred and thirty four units and the number is displayer with 3 decimals.

The first 0 is, afaik, the argument number (always 0).

you can use something like this:

columns:[
         {
            field: 'MyNumericalDigits',
            title: 'NDigits',
           format: '{0:0,00}'
         }
]
