Oracle forms on 10gAS display numerals as 1,2,3,4 in arabic nls
Posted on 2006-03-26
I have a display issue with the arabic nls
my applicaiton is running on oracle forms deployed on 10gAS rel 1 .
I have hte nls_lang parameter
ARABIC_UNITED ARAB EMIRATES.AR8MSWIN1256
NOT THE DATE FIELDS AND NUMERIC FIELDS WILL DISPLAY THE ARABIC NUMERALS
WHERE AS i WANT THE DISPLAY TO BE IN ENGLISH NUMERALS 1,2,3,4 ETC ...BUT AT THE SAME TIME THE DIRECTION OF THE SCREEN HAS TO BE FROM RIGHT TO LEFT AND THE ARABIC LABELS HAS OT BE DISPLAYED PROPERLY .
Right now if I get the screens from right to left then the numbers iwll automatically turn to arabic numerals ...where as I require the numerals and the date to be displayed in english numerals.
requesting some expert help on this please ...
Thanks in advance .
