Wrong decimal formatting in Lithuanian locale



Decimal control mapped to a Decimal property does not accept valid decimal properties in Lithuanian locale. In Lithuanian Locale, dot (".") is a decimal separator and comma (",") is a thousands separator. So 123.456.789,00 is a valid decimal value. But PRPC throws a validation error that it is not a valid decimal value.

Error Messages

"123.456.789,00" is not a valid decimal value

Steps to Reproduce

1. Set Lithuanian locale on Operator, lt_LT.
2. Create a flow > section with a Decimal Control mapped to a Decimal property.
3. Enable thousands separator for the control
4. Run the flow and input a valid decimal value in Lithuanian locale, 123.456.789,00.
5. Error received, "123.456.789,00 is a valid decimal value".

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. Native Java API, getGroupingSeparator(), assigns non-breaking space char instead of "." as grouping seperator for lt_LT locale. Because of this, client side validation displays error for valid decimal values. PRPC needs to check for "lt_LT" locale and update the grouping seperator with "."
