LCID (Pascalscript)

General information about LCID

In order to localize application programs, country-specific information must be provided according to the particular circumstances of the respective country. For each language there is one LCID (= locale identifiers), which is of type integer.

This LCID can be used to read the locale information for formatting display values from the operating system. The application software can thus adapt its expenditure to the respective country. Windows provides a table for most LCIDs with the bit scheme information such as date values, floating point numbers, currencies, month names, weekday names and their abbreviations.

In the EULANDA® ERP system, this setting is automatically read out by the operating system for the country set in the system control when the program is started. However, if an expression is to be generated that takes into account the locale information of another country, regardless of the country set, formatting that takes into account the foreign LCID is necessary. In the EULANDA® Report Designer, functions for generating formats for date, time and numerical values can be controlled via LCID.

Output features

The report designer script functions specified at the bottom of the page allow you to specify an LCID to force you to output the formatting of foreign countries.
