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

<h:inputText id="sal" value="#{ManagedBean.sal}">
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
