Subject:

Comma character used as decimal point symbol instead of point character in some locales on S60 3rd Edition KIJ000693

 

Platform(s): Device(s), SW version(s):
S60 3rd Edition  

Category:

Java

Subcategory:

MIDP1.0/2.0

Description:

Overview:
When TextField.DECIMAL is used to enter numbers, the comma character is used on some devices/language variants as the decimal point symbol instead of the point character.
Detailed description:
When the user enters numbers to a textField.DECIMAL-type textfield, some locales use the comma as the decimal pointer instead of the point.  This can cause some confusion if it is not taken into consideration when writing applications.
How to reproduce:
Insert a text field of decimal type, enter a number, and try adding a decimal point.
Solution:
If "hardcoded" numbers are also used in, for example, calculations, they must use point instead of comma – otherwise an exception will be thrown.
