Allow percentage format without multiplying by 100
Currently when you use a "p" format in the numerictextbox, the value is multiplied by 100. The numerictextbox should support the option to show the percentage symbol without modifying the input value.

Hello Donald,

Thank you for your feedback.

The reason why the NumericTextBox component behaves in this way is that it accepts a valid number as input.

A percentage is a dimensionless number (pure number) and it has no unit of measurement. It is a number or ratio expressed as a fraction of 100. That is why displaying 20% requires the user to enter a valid number - e.g. 0.2.

To show the value entered itself as the percentage value i.e. prevent the multiplication by 100, create a custom format string, e.g.:

<kendo-numerictextbox
      format="#.##\\%"
      [value]="value"
    ></kendo-numerictextbox>

Here is an example:
