JSF currencySymbol

Hi,

I am trying to understand following code but could not understand.



<h:inputText id="sal" value="#{ManagedBean.sal}">
<f:convertNumber currencySymbol="$" type="currency"/>
</h:inputText><br>
<h:message for="sal" style="color:BLUE"/>
<h:outputText value="#{ManagedBean.sal}">
<f:convertNumber currencySymbol="$" type="currency"/>
</h:outputText>


Especially what currencySymbol is doing.

Please advise. Any links, ideas, suggestions, sample code, resources highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Here the code is expecting an input that is bound to the setSal method in the ManagedBean

<f:convertNumber currencySymbol="$" type="currency"/>
This is an in built currency convertor; that does the conversion for the values you enter in the input text.

Here is a link that shows how it works  -

why we need to use 'currencySymbol' in inputText. It made sense in outputText. Does that mean we can conver from say Rp to Dollar etc if i give like

<h:inputText id="sal" value="#{ManagedBean.sal}">
<f:convertNumber currencySymbol="Rp" type="currency"/>
</h:inputText><br>
<h:message for="sal" style="color:BLUE"/>
<h:outputText value="#{ManagedBean.sal}">
<f:convertNumber currencySymbol="$" type="currency"/>
</h:outputText>
So input text accept currency as Rp and output tect converts that to $ and displays?

Please advise
