Validating decimal fields in Spanish shows error

I have a Grid with dialog editing with some decimal fields. When using en-US localization, everything works well. But when changed to es-ES, Grid displays the fields as expected (using comma as decimal separator) and also edit dialog shows the fields with comma-delimiter for decimal places:

However, validation says the value is wrong:

Decimal fields uses DataAnnotations to define valid ranges:

I've already loaded cldr files as explained in several forum posts. The Grid definition is as follows:

I've tried several ways to achieve the right validation, even using jQuery-validation-globalize, but nothing seems to work. Please, can you help me?

Thanks in advance

Hi Alberto, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
We checked your query and would like to suggest you to use the ValidationRules property of the grid columns for setting validation rules to the columns. Please check below code snippet, 
@Html.EJS().Grid("Grid").DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).Columns(col => 
    col.Field("Freight").HeaderText("Freight").ValidationRules(new { max = 99999.99, min = 0}).EditType("numericedit").Edit(new 
    { @params = new Syncfusion.EJ2.Inputs.NumericTextBox(){ 
        ValidateDecimalOnType = true, 
        Step = 1, 
        Decimals = 2, 
        Format = "C2" 
    } }).Width("160").Format("C2").Add(); 
Sample and documentation for your reference, 
Please get back to us if you have any further queries.

Hello Pavithra,

Thanks for the quick answer. Maybe ValidationRules are the way to configure range validation but that implies I have to explicitly define that ValidationRule wherever I use that ViewModel instead of using the DataAnnotation defined for that field.

Thanks again.

Hi Alberto, 

The range validation for numerictextbox using data annotations model is working fine in our end on using Spanish culture. Please check below sample for your reference, 

We suspect you might be facing issue because of the culture files not loaded properly in your application. Can you please once ensure this in your end based on the sample we provided. 

You can cross check the above sample with your application to see if you have missed anything. 

Let us know if you have any concerns. 
Pavithra S.

Hi Pavitrha,

Thanks for the example. That led me to find out the issue was due to Syncfusion version I was using ( After I've updated nugets I've been able to use Spanish format without any issue.

Thanks again.
