Formatting (Converter)

You can use the Converter Wizard to assign formatting to UI components. At runtime, the values displayed by the UI component are then automatically formatted accordingly. The formatting, e.g. a currency sign, only changes the display of the value. The value itself is not changed by the formatting, e.g. $ or . An exception is the formatting with %, where the value is also changed accordingly. Image not found
