Customize/Limit available locales in Designer? [message #550553] Fri, 30 July 2010 18:56 Go to next message

Hi there,

Is there any way to customize/limit the available locales in the BIRT
designer, e.g. in the date/number-formatting properties of data-elements?

I think it would be much easier to use, if I could limit to the 1-2
necessary locales - instead of having to select from this huge list from
"Africaans".... to "White Russian".
Better even, if there would be a way to set a report-wide default-locale
for all [formatting-] elements.

Thanks for any feedback.
Robert

Robert,

For formatting numbers and dates, BIRT uses the default locale. Which
you can also set with viewer parameter (__locale) or in the
Window-Preferences->Report Design->Preview setting page. The Preview
setting is used to test different locales.
