Setting Up Your Angular Project

Before you start with the installation of any Kendo UI for Angular control, ensure that you have a running Angular project. The prerequisites to accomplish the installation of the components are always the same regardless of the Kendo UI for Angular package you want to use, and are fully described in the section on setting up your Angular project.

Installing the Package

  1. To add the Kendo UI for Angular Internationalization package, run the following command:

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-intl @progress/kendo-licensing
  2. Import the IntlModule in your root application or feature module.

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { IntlModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-intl';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
        imports: [BrowserModule, IntlModule],
        declarations: [AppComponent],
        bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    export class AppModule {}

Using the Package

  1. After successfully installing the Internationalization, provide the IntlService service in the constructor in the app.component.ts file:

    export class AppComponent {
    constructor(public intl: IntlService) {}
  2. Then, use the formatNumber function of the service to format the number:

    <p>{{ intl.formatNumber(decimal, 'n2') }}</p>
  3. Build and serve the application by running the following command in the root folder.

    ng serve
  4. Point your browser to http://localhost:4200 to see the formatted number on the page.
