How can I use DDV recognizing the Komma ',' instead of '.' as decimal point, validating the contents of a CEdit as 'double' type?

Set the locale for your process by calling the setlocale() function in the C Runtime libraries.

I have read about the 'setlocale' function in the online help but
still don't know where and how to call it.
Could you specify your answer (where? how?), because I am a newbie.

thank you

Well, I have found out by myself:

I set the socal settings to the Windows settings by calling
setlocale(LC_ALL, "");

I get the decimal point sign for my own converting routines with the following code:

lconv *localconv_ ;
localconv_=localeconv();
Komma = localconv_->decimal_point;

Please anybody tell me if that's a good way to do this.
