European currency notation input problem with DBGrid.

I use Delphi 1.0 for database apps.
Our country uses the european
currency notation so the number like
US$ 1,000.00 will show as US$ 1.000,00.
In TFloatField, the display format
",0.00" is used and it displayed without
problem in our Portuguese Windows 98.

When using the DBGrid, I could not input
the "," as point decimal. I tried to use
the MaskEdit property but it did not work
too. Besides that the delphi will let the
user to type various "," s so the delphi
will generate an exception in case the
user typed the comma 2 times like "45,,50"
instead of "45,50". I don't have problem
with DBEdit, because I download a freeware
DBEdit component to solve this problem.

Please help.

If you look under 'CurrencyFormat' variable in he helpfile you'll see that you can change the behaveour by changing two Delphi global variables:

Set:
DecimalSeparator:=',';
ThousandSeparator:='.';

That's all, Your maskedits will now work for european formats.
