Setting Language Currency Properties

The Properties page of the Language Builder and the Language Manager allows you to set the currency format for each language in your application.

A language’s currency format properties are established through the appropriate SET commands when an application is executed or when the current language is changed.

·       Currency Decimals: The Currency Decimals field lets you specify the number of decimal places displayed in numeric expressions using the SET DECIMALS TO command.

·       Currency Symbol: The Currency Symbol field lets you specify the currency symbol in the display of numeric, currency, float, and double expressions using the SET CURRENCY TO command .

·       Currency Left: The Currency Left field lets you specify the left position in the display of numeric, currency, float, and double expressions using the SET CURRENCY LEFT command. The default position is RIGHT.

·       Currency Separator: The Currency Separator field lets you specify the separator to be used in the display of numeric, currency, float, and double expressions using the SET SEPARATOR TO command.

·       Currency Point: The Currency Separator field lets you specify the decimal point character used in the display of numeric and currency expressions using the SET POINT TO command.

Tip: See your Visual FoxPro Help file for documentation of the SET DECIMALS TO, SET CURRENCY TO, SET CURRENCY LEFT, SET SEPARATOR and SET POINT TO commands.
