  • [SOLVED]Euro sign with English (Ireland)

    My project's language is set to English (Ireland) (Default) and there are no other languages included.

    The currency symbol for English (Ireland) is correctly set to € in Regional Settings, but on a form with a Currency type field the currency symbol shows as a question mark (?)

    The same applies in a grid.

    Regional settings for the field is set to Yes.
    Currency format for the field is set to Yes.

    Is this a bug?

    Hello,

    This could be caused due to your charset configurations. What charset have you set on your PHP? And on your SC?

    regards,

        If I change Project -> Properties -> Locales to English (United Kingdom), save and generate I correctly get the sign.
        If I change Project -> Properties -> Locales to English (United States), save and generate I correctly get the $ sign.
        If I change Project -> Properties -> Locales to Dutch (Belgium), save and generate I correctly get the € sign.
        If I change Project -> Properties -> Locales to French (France), save and generate I correctly get the € sign.
        If I change Project -> Properties -> Locales to Catalan (Spain), save and generate I incorrectly get the ? sign.

        Back to English (Ireland) and I'm back to the ? instead of the €.

        All the above is using the English (ISO-8859-1) charset. However based on advice at http://www.askmehelpdesk.com which says....

        If you develop web pages that may have the euro symbol, you should specify the character encoding as UTF-8.

        I changed from English (ISO-8859-1) charset to English (UTF-8) charset and all is working as it should.

        I hope this helps someone else.
