Converter not displaying correct format on Chromium-based browsers

I found out that, using converter, numbers are not correctly displayed in Chromium browsers. This includes, as far as I've tried, Google Chrome, Vivaldi, Midori and new MS Edge. This does not happen on Firefox.

I'm using the built-in converter formatedNumber converter, using the expression '#,##0.00', so numbers come in a format like 1000 -> 1,000.00. Again, this is correctly displayed on firefox, but other browsers do it the wrong way around, like 1000 -> 1.000,00.

I initially thought it was bound to the browser language, but the issue persist on both spanish and english.

I can easily control the output from back-end, add a little hard-converter myself or simply change the label element for a decimalbox and make it read-only, but I think this is something worth pointing out.

I prepared a little fiddle demostrating this and I do recommend checking in a few different browsers, likeFirefox and Google Chrome.


I may be overlooking something, so I first check here before properly calling it a bug or something like that.

The built-in converter is implemented by org.zkoss.bind.converter.FormatedNumberConverter. It determines the decimal point by current server locale instead of a browser.If you don't set locale, it call java.util.Locale.getDefault().

The doc about determining the locale.

Please check your server configuration and java code.
