# Ticket #3579 (closed enhancement: fixed)

## Use comma as decimal seperator

Reported by: Assigned to: pirsig@quisma.de bobbysmith007 normal TimingAndEstimationPlugin normal 0.10

### Description

Hi,

if I use a "," as decimal seperator which is the standard decimal seperator in germany i get this error:

hours changed from NaNh to NaNh.


Is it possible to implement local specific seperators for float values?

Thx,

Alex

um... I am just using python's builtin float() function which converts strings to floats.

I can probably preprocess the string though. I will try to get to this soon.

Unfortunatly all of the numbers are still going to print with '.' characters (at least right now). Thats alot of work to fix that one right now.

thx for the quick response and the fix!! I've upgraded to 0.6.8 and it works if i put values in "Add Hours to Ticket"-field but if i do the same with "Estimated Number of Hours"-field. I get: "Estimated Number of Hours: NaNh?"

Thx,

Alex

doh... Sorry I didnt even think of that because I dont ever interact with the estimated hours field from python.

I will try to have a similar patch up for you soon that handles estimated hours.

(In [4164]) re #3579 this should hopefully successfully convert all incoming hour strings into a form where decimals are separated by . rather than ,

I found that this was creating extra changelog crap that it shouldnt have. This fixes that by not inserting changes that were not changes.
