Re: Decimal digit in frequency entry window

Hi Kriss,

thanks for your reply. Yes it can be changed with the Keyboard Layout.

When i switch to Swiss Keyboard Layout i'll have the Dot on the number pad. But that affects the whole Operating System with every running program :( This would lead to some other bad mistakes when writing e-mails as some characters have other positions and special characters than the original de-DE Layout.

Changing the general behaviour of Windows with the decimal separator char or thousands delimiter could have some other negative impact i don't wanna risk.

A good way for international support would be to give the parser, which converts the string to a decimal, the current input locale. Maybe it would be sufficient to check if the value contains a comma or a dot, as these two characters are the only decimal separators i'm aware of.

Is that something that can be changed in settings in Windows?
Advanced Keyboard settings more specifically?
