By default, Handsontable treats all cell values as
string type. This is because
returns a string as its value.
In many cases you will prefer cell values to be treated as
number type. This allows to format
numbers nicely and sort them correctly.
To trigger the Numeric cell type, use the option
type: 'numeric' in
Numeric cell type uses Numbro.js as the formatting library. Head over to their website to learn about the formatting syntax.
To use number formatting style valid for your language (i18n), load language definition to Numbro.js. See "Languages" section in Numbro.js docs for more info.
