Question: I'm trying to use setlocale() function to set the decimal seperator for a French version of my software. I thought that this would be simple, but it doesn't seem to work.
Answer: The setlocale() will work for the printf() family of functions, but will not make the
change within the VCl. The Sysutils header provides variables so you change various formatting routines.
These variables are initially set by using the Win32 routine GetLocaleInfo() which grabs the formats from the operating sytem.
Note: The applications UpdateFormsSettings() method set whether you can make changes to the system settings. Default is true.
