Detailed Description

Helper class for formatting and parsing numbers with thousands separators.

This class contains only static functions, so users must not create instances but directly call the member functions.

Since
2.9.2

Library:  wxBase

Public Types

enum  Style {
  Style_None = 0x00,
  Style_WithThousandsSep = 0x01,
  Style_NoTrailingZeroes = 0x02
}
 Bit masks used with ToString(). More...

Member Enumeration Documentation

Bit masks used with ToString().

Enumerator
Style_None 

This flag can be used to indicate absence of any other flags below.

Style_WithThousandsSep 

If this flag is given, thousands separators will be inserted in the number string representation as defined by the current locale.

Style_NoTrailingZeroes 

If this flag is given, trailing zeroes in a floating point number string representation will be omitted.

If the number is actually integer, the decimal separator will be omitted as well. To give an example, formatting the number 1.23 with precision 5 will normally yield "1.23000" but with this flag it would return "1.23". And formatting 123 with this flag will return just "123" for any precision.

This flag can't be used with ToString() overload taking the integer value.

Member Function Documentation

static bool wxNumberFormatter::FromString ( wxString  s,
long *  val 
)
static

Parse a string representation of a number possibly including thousands separators.

These functions parse number representation in the current locale. On success they return true and store the result at the location pointed to by val (which can't be NULL), otherwise false is returned.

See also
wxString::ToLong(), wxString::ToDouble()
static bool wxNumberFormatter::FromString ( wxString  s,
double *  val 
)
static

Parse a string representation of a number possibly including thousands separators.

These functions parse number representation in the current locale. On success they return true and store the result at the location pointed to by val (which can't be NULL), otherwise false is returned.

See also
wxString::ToLong(), wxString::ToDouble()
static wxChar wxNumberFormatter::GetDecimalSeparator ( )
static

Get the decimal separator for the current locale.

Decimal separators is always defined and we fall back to returning '.' in case of an error.

static bool wxNumberFormatter::GetThousandsSeparatorIfUsed ( wxChar sep)
static

Get the thousands separator if grouping of the digits is used by the current locale.

The value returned in sep should be only used if the function returns true, otherwise no thousands separator should be used at all.

Parameters
sepPoints to the variable receiving the thousands separator character if it is used by the current locale. May be NULL if only the function return value is needed.
static wxString wxNumberFormatter::ToString ( long  val,
int  flags = Style_WithThousandsSep 
)
static

Returns string representation of an integer number.

By default, the string will use thousands separators if appropriate for the current locale. This can be avoided by passing Style_None as flags in which case the call to the function has exactly the same effect as wxString::Format("%ld", val).

Notice that calling ToString() with a value of type int and non-default flags results in ambiguity between this overload and the one below. To resolve it, you need to cast the value to long.

Parameters
valThe variable to convert to a string.
flagsCombination of values from the Style enumeration (except for Style_NoTrailingZeroes which can't be used with this overload).
static wxString wxNumberFormatter::ToString ( double  val,
int  precision,
int  flags = Style_WithThousandsSep 
)
static

Returns string representation of a floating point number.

Parameters
valThe variable to convert to a string.
precisionNumber of decimals to write in formatted string.
flagsCombination of values from the Style enumeration.
