This code snippet is one of the series of snippets that demonstrate how to implement support for international diversity. This snippet shows how to format a real number according to the locale settings of the device.

Source file

// Buffer for localized text
TBuf<50> myBuf;
// The amount to format
TReal myAmount = 1234.56789;
// Real number formatter, initialized with system's current locale
// settings
TRealFormat myFormat;
// Format the number with the decimal separator setting of the
// current locale
myBuf.AppendNum(myAmount, myFormat);


A real number is formatted according to the locale settings of the device.
