    How do I pass culture info from client to server? I'm using the js library to initialize the report viewer (telerik_ReportViewer).

    I had a look the doc here here but I don't see how this can be passed to the server.


    I want to pass the culture info to the reporting service so that I can set the culture of the running thread correctly.

    Hello Yujie,

    I noticed that you have opened a Support ticket on the issue. I have answered the questions there. For the benefit of the community I will summarize the discussion also here :

    The culture may be passed in the device info settings when using the Reporting REST API. We do not expose a property for setting the device info settings in the Html5 Report Viewer. A workaround may be found in the How to pass culture via AJAX call from the HTML5 Report Viewer KB article. Basically, on the $.ajaxPrefilter event you should intercept the request for creating the document and modify its device info settings to provide the needed culture. The code may look like :

    $.ajaxPrefilter(function (options, originalOptions, jqXHR) {
        var str = originalOptions.url;
        var documentsSuffix = "documents";
        var isDocumentsUrl = (str.indexOf(documentsSuffix) == str.length - documentsSuffix.length);
        if (isDocumentsUrl) {
            var d = JSON.parse(;
            d.deviceInfo["CurrentCulture"] = YourCultureHere;
            d.deviceInfo["CurrentUICulture"] = YourCultureHere;
   = JSON.stringify(d);

    The Report Localized with YourCultureHere would be automatically rendered in this culture by the REST Service.
