Name

PriceCommas — show thousands separator in price pictures

SYNOPSIS

Yes | No

DESCRIPTION

The directive specifies whether mon_thousands_sep (specified as part of Locale) will be used in currency formatting for display.

If no commas are desired in price numbers (for the item-price tag etc.), disable this directive.

Despite the possibly misleading directive name, Interchange does not always insert a comma (",") but a proper locale-equivalent of it.

DIRECTIVE TYPE AND DEFAULT VALUE

Catalog directive

EXAMPLES

Example: Disabling PriceCommas

PriceCommas 0

Example: Setting PriceCommas depending on current locale

# Establish a default
PriceCommas    1

# Establish locale-specific price commas
Locale fr_FR  PriceCommas  0
Locale en_US  PriceCommas  1

To fully understand the example and implicitly presented Interchange features, make sure you're familiar with internationalization and locale glossary entries.


NOTES

This directive is overridden by eventual Locale price_picture definition.
