Changing af:convertNumber Format according to Locale- Oracle ADF

Simple post with very simple application-
we can covert a Numeric field format according to standard locale in ADF Faces.
when we have a numeric field on page there is a converter inside it, called af:convertNumber is extension of the standard JSF javax.faces.convert.NumberConverter.

 user can change it for Integer digits , fraction digits etc. but here i am talking about format of Number(Amount), to do this follow these steps.
  • Change GroupingUsed to true, by default it is true
  • Now set Locale, you can do this using managed bean or simply write it here
  • Managed Bean code to create Locale-  private Locale format=Locale.ENGLISH;
  • Now see various formats of Amount using Locale-

Using en-US-
 Using fr-
 Using hi-IN-for Hindi fonts
 Using de-DE -

so this is the thing how you can change formatting , this can also be done by managed bean.

  • Create a variable of type Locale and its getter -setter
  • Use it in Locale field of af:convertNumber  

  •     public void chinaButton(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        public void frenchButton(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        public void italianButton(ActionEvent actionEvent) {

  • You can also set Max and Min fraction digits in af:convertNumber
