Allow adornments in NumericTextBox
Is it possible to add the adornment features from the TextBox to the NumericTextBox? Specifically, the prefix and suffix?

Hi Daniel, Nina,

The adornments feature for the rest of the input components is still not part of our immediate development plans and we are still tracking the demand for it.

In the meantime, any additional content can be adjusted with some custom CSS inside or next to the NumericTextBox component as demonstrated in the following demo:


Using absolute positioned elemnts might not be an ideal workaround, but could be considered if the feature is must have in the poject.

Progress Telerik

Any update on this? Would be a really nice feature.

Now almost a year has past, and once again, I could use the Adornments for a numeric textbox. It's a scientific form, that needs units to be displayed.

I would like to use the NumericTextBox controls in our form, but same as the people below are missing some options from the textbox to make it viable for a consistent look.

- suffix (show a unit with the number)
- validation icon 
- clear button

Probably related to this: the success/error icons for these input controls are not shown either.

I have got the same question, but not only for NumericTextBox. 

The following controls don't support adornments:

  • kendo-maskedtextbox
  • kendo-numerictextbox
  • kendo-autocomplete
  • kendo-combobox
  • kendo-dropdownlist
  • kendo-multiselect
  • kendo-textarea

In fact, this hiatus makes the adornment feature of the regular textbox a bit useless: we don't want an inconsistent form where only some of the input controls have an icon, just because Kendo UI didn't include support for it.
This shouldn't be hard to adapt, no? 

I've also posted a question on Stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/q/64247720

Thank you in advance for this fix.

Best regards,
