Hi,

What would be the best way to configure the FormattedText for currency
and to ensure locale is obeyed?

eg... $50,000.00

or a pattern like $###,##0.00 (but this is only correct for my locale)

Looking at the API I could not simply see how to enable locale specifc
currency patterns... the Swing NumberFormatter has a
getCurrencyInstance() method that does this for Swing.

Anything similar?

Cheers,
Grant

The currency symbol is not actually recognized in NumberFormatter.
But I have in plan a CurrencyFormatter on which I already made some
investigations about the implementation.
You can however add a currency symbol to a NumberFormatter by adding a
prefix or suffix.

Eric,

How would I set a prefix/suffix to NumberFormatter - the methods are
marked protected??? I guess I could extend NumberFormatter, but seems
like a complicated way to just set prefix/suffix ???

Cheers,
Grant
