Subject [jira] Commented: (TAP5-211) Add localization to translators to allow for localized display/entering of values
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2008 08:44:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-211?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12643438#action_12643438

Ulrich Stärk commented on TAP5-211:
-----------------------------------

The majority of the world (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_separator#Examples_of_use)
is using the ',' char as a seperator and you are saying there is no general need?

Sure, for a simple form on some page you can just provide your own Translator for the respective
field. But if you are using components that rely on translators from the TranslatorSource
service (like BeanEditForm) you can't just contribute your own translators, you'll also have
to replace the TranslatorSource with an implementation that uses the current user's locale,
so a workaround is everything else but trivial. And then there is still the client side validation
issue.

So there are two things that need to be adressed:

1. We either need to have a TranslatorSource that takes into account the current user's locale
or extend the Translator interface
2. We need a client side parsing function that matches the server side.

Dojo (http://api.dojotoolkit.org/jsdoc/dojo/1.2/dojo.number) has a number parser/formatter
that can handle different locales, maybe we can borrow something from there.

> Localization support for pages and messages is great in Tapestry but it lacks support
for localization of input values because the translators don't have support for it. It would
be great if users could just enter numbers etc. in their respective locale, e.g. use ',' instead
of '.' to seperate decimal places from the integer part, out of the box.
