Thread DecimalSeparator doesn't work?
Thu, Jan 16 2014 5:30 AMPermanent Link


In Europe a comma is used decimals and a dot for thousands.

However when using

DecimalSeparator := ',';

the following error is shown

[Error] newrecord.wbs (62,7): The referenced variable, parameter, or function DecimalSeparator does not exist

Is this a bug?

According to the help, it is a property of the global FormatSettings. Presumably
you must also ensure that its unit is included.

I find looking at the framework source is handy in working out how to use this sort
of thing.

Thank you.

That got me on the right track. The following is working.

FormatSettings.DecimalSeparator := ',';

However dots (.) are also changed to commas.

Unfortunately FormatSettings.ThousandSeparator doesn't exist.

I'll make sure that this is fixed in the next build (1.03 B2).
