Error in format currency

I'm not sure how to install and configure the internationalization of syncfusion correctly. In the documentation it seems that something was missing, or I could not understand. I need to format monetary values ​​on the grid. I am in Brazil, and our standard would be $ 99,999.00, that is, the dot first and then the comma. In the American pattern it is the opposite, that is, first the comma and then the point.

I did it this way and it works, but in the US standard and with the R $ of the Brazilian currency:

this.currencyFormat = {format: 'R$ #, ## 0.00'};

<e-column field = 'ValueNF' [filter] = 'filter' headerText = 'Value NF' textAlign = 'Left' [format] = 'currencyFormat'>

But if I reverse to the example below, it gives error:

this.currencyFormat = {format: 'R$ #. ## 0,00'};

The error is as follows:

ERROR TypeError: Can not read property '1' of null

Hi Fabiano, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

You can format to Brazilian currency by setting the currency code as “BRL” using setCurrencyCode method and specify the column format as “C2”. 

import { setCulture, setCurrencyCode } from "@syncfusion/ej2-base"; 

<e-column field = 'ValueNF' [filter] = 'filter' headerText = 'Value NF' textAlign = 'Left' format= 'C2'></e-column>

I did as you told me.

I did as you told me and it is returning like this: $ 99,999.99

It should look like this: R$ 99.999,99

I tried inserting in the module and in the component itself the calls and I was not successful. Are there any packages that should be installed the most?
There is also another problem, when I try to generate a PDF from the grid, if there is an e-column that has the format parameter, it returns the error below. If you remove the format, it works!

ERROR Error: Uncaught (in promise): TypeError: format.split is not a function
TypeError: format.split is not a function ...

Hi Fabiano, 

Thanks for your update. 

As per your requirement we have created a sample for your reference. In the below sample, we have import corresponding culture CLDR files then load and apply locale using loadCldr, setCulture and SetCurrencyCode  method.  

Please refer the below code example and sample for more information. With the below approach the PDF export will work fine.  

<ejs-grid #grid [dataSource]='data' allowPaging='true' [allowPdfExport]='true'  [toolbar]='toolbar' (toolbarClick)='toolbarClick($event)'[allowResizing]="true"> 
      <e-column field='OrderID' headerText='Order ID' width='120'></e-column> 
      <e-column field='Freight' headerText='Freight' type='number' width='120' format='C2'></e-column> 

import * as cagregorian from "./ca-gregorian.json"; 
import * as currencies from "./currencies.json"; 
import * as numbers from "./numbers.json"; 
import * as timeZoneNames from "./timeZoneNames.json"; 
loadCldr(cagregorian, currencies, numbers, timeZoneNames); // load json files of pt 
setCulture('pt'); // Change the Grid culture 
setCurrencyCode("BRL"); // Change the currency code 
export class DefaultComponent implements OnInit { 
    public data: Object[] = []; 
    public grid: GridComponent; 
    public toolbar; 
    ngOnInit(): void { 
        this.data = orderDatas; 
        this.toolbar = ['PdfExport']; 
    toolbarClick(args): void { 
        switch (args.item.text) { 
            case 'PDF Export': 

Please get back to us if you need further assistance on this.
