[GH #7419] Using GBP currency

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f3447008278> #<Tag:0x00007f3447008110>

I need to format currency to GBP. When I use ‘en-GB’ as culture, it still shows as dollars.

I have tried an example found here, but it doesn’t even seem to be working in the demo: http://jsfiddle.net/zjdzxz95/

columns: [
		type: 'numeric',
		numericFormat: {
			pattern: '$0,0.00',
			culture: 'en-GB'

How should I change the format to GBP?

Hi Chris,

do you use Vanilla JS or any of our wrappers (for: Angular, React, Vue)? I will prepare a demo for you.

Thanks @aleksandra_budnik. I use Vanillia JS.

Sorry for keeping you waiting, Chris.

It turned out that there is a regression from version 8.0.0 https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/issues/7419 for some of the cultures. I’ve passed a note to our dev team and will update you on the status.

I guess that if you would still want to use v8+ we could use a custom renderer to attach the pound char and set up the correct format for numeric cells.

Hi @chrisdavieswebdesign

I just wanted to make an update here.

Apparently, the issue was caused by a version mismatch in our materials. When we use the Numbro v2.1.2 example works as expected https://jsfiddle.net/tmby6fkj/
Please let me know if it works for you as well.
