In most languages a dot (‘.’) represents the Decimal Point and a comma (‘,’) represents the Digit Grouping Symbol.
For example, 4.54 and 1,234.
There are certain languages, however, that define these symbols differently, such as German and Russian.
In German, for example, the Decimal Point is a comma (‘,’).
In order to correctly analyze data published from Intergraph Smart Instrumentation or retrieved into Intergraph Smart Instrumentation, the adapter converts given values to the local decimal point using the function ConvertToLocaleDecPoint(), which is located in the TaskComponent module. This function receives a number to convert and returns the converted value.
