View Full Version : Bug when decimalSeparator other than .

10 Oct 2006, 9:09 AM
First of all: Thank you so much for that awesome work :-) I have just included the grid into my application, and I am sure that my client will be more than happy with it. When changed the decimalSeparator to comma (,) the fractional part got lost when parsing the string to a float value because for javascript the decimal separator has to be point (.) for having the string correctly parsed. I have fixed the functions for the NumberEditor and the Money renderer. Only 3 lines of code - I hope it helps and I would be glad to see your work going on and on and on :-)

YAHOO.ext.grid.NumberEditor.prototype.show = function(){
this.element.dom.title = '';
// Fix decimalSeparator
this.element.dom.value = this.element.dom.value.replace(".", YAHOO.ext.grid.NumberEditor.prototype.decimalSeparator);

YAHOO.ext.grid.NumberEditor.prototype.getValue = function(){
return this.originalValue;
var value = this.element.dom.value;
// Fix decimalSeparator
value = value.replace(YAHOO.ext.grid.NumberEditor.prototype.decimalSeparator, ".");

var formatMoney = function(value){
value -= 0;
value = (Math.round(value*100))/100;
value = (value == Math.floor(value)) ? value + '.00' : ( (value*10 == Math.floor(value*10)) ? value + '0' : value);
// Fix decimalSeparator
return value.toString().replace(".", YAHOO.ext.grid.NumberEditor.prototype.decimalSeparator) + " €";

Thank you for reporting this issue. It makes a lot of sense. I have added it to my bug list and it will be corrected in the next release.

don't suppose you'd be interested in making the bug list available? Maybe some of us can jump in and help squish them :)

They are all fixed. :) I fix them as they are reported, that makes it easy to do releases as needed. I would definitely like the help though! If you are really interested, I can set up the source on sourceforge so it has a remote CVS.

I'm not sure how much help I personally would be, as I'm learning javascript as I go with this project I'm working on. But if I come up with stuff to contribute, I'll gladly do so. If anything I'll get more experience in working in a multi-developer environment with javascript. Do you have a plan for things you want to accomplish with the toolkit?

I know I plan on extending your toolbar once I finish up this dynamic "widgets" system I'm working on. I'm thinking about trying to make it a bit more like the upcoming Word interface with ribbons and labels for the different sections. I could start there after I finish up my widgets.

If others are interested, I'd say do it. You've done A LOT and I'm sure lots of people are profiting from it in their work environment. Why not give them a chance to contribute back :)
