Ignore culture on input in NumericTextBox
As suggested here : http://www.telerik.com/forums/supporting-both-comma-and-dot-for-decimal-input
With this example : http://trykendoui.telerik.com/ikId/2

Having to force either the dot or comma for numerical input is cumbersome in applications where customers input data all day long and it has to be effective. 

I would suggest a flag named along the lines of "IgnoreCultureOnInput" which would allow you to punch in either the dot or the comma, but have it converted it back into your local for display. 

Note that the example above is not complete as it is : 
1 - locale specific (won't adjust if you locale calls for a comma instead)
2 - does not support text selection

I am sorry to say but currently Kendo does not support such functionality. In order to achieve this behavior one should override our logic in order to force the control to accept another decimal separator.

Hi there,

Totally agree.

Any news around this feature ?

I agree completely. The only very small potential problem I can see with this is group separators. But I think there are very few users who would even bother using group separators while doing number input and even if they do, it ough to be very simple to check if there is a single separator that differs from all others and treat that as the decimal separator.

I know that personally I almost exclusively use dot as a decimal separator even though my locale suggests comma. And almost every service I use and develop accepts this without complaints, with Kendo currently being the only cause of problems.
