Hi everyone.
So one of the last things of my shopping cart is to fix the currency.
The problem is that it is on the left side like this $10, and I want it to be on the right like this 10$.
Here is the file:

<?php
header ('Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8');
require_once 'utf.php';
if (!defined('WEB_ROOT')) {
	exit;
}

// get current configuration
$sql = "SELECT sc_name, sc_address, sc_phone, sc_email, sc_shipping_cost, sc_currency, sc_order_email
        FROM tbl_shop_config";
$result = dbQuery($sql);

// extract the shop config fetched from database
// make sure we query return a row
if (dbNumRows($result) > 0) {
	extract(dbFetchAssoc($result));
} else {
	// since the query didn't return any row ( maybe because you don't run plaincart.sql as is )
	// we just set blank values for all variables
	$sc_name = $sc_address = $sc_phone = $sc_email = $sc_shipping_cost = $sc_currency = '';
	$sc_order_email = 'y';
}

// get available currencies
$sql = "SELECT cy_id, cy_code
        FROM tbl_currency
		ORDER BY cy_code";
$result = dbQuery($sql);

$currency = '';
while ($row = dbFetchAssoc($result)) {
	extract($row);
	$currency .= "<option value=\"$cy_id\"";
	if ($cy_id == $sc_currency) {
		$currency .= " selected";
	}
	
	$currency .= ">$cy_code</option>\r\n";
}		
?>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<form action="processConfig.php?action=modify" method="post" name="frmConfig" id="frmConfig">
 <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2" class="entryTable">
  <tr id="entryTableHeader"> 
   <td colspan="2">Shop Configuration</td>
  </tr>
  <tr> 
   <td width="150" class="label">Shop Name</td>
   <td class="content"><input name="txtShopName" type="text" class="box" id="txtShopName" value="<?php echo $sc_name; ?>" size="50" maxlength="50"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr> 
   <td width="150" class="label">Address</td>
   <td class="content"><textarea name="mtxAddress" cols="50" rows="3" id="mtxAddress" class="box"><?php echo $sc_address; ?></textarea></td>

  </tr>
 </table>
 <p>&nbsp;</p>
 <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2" class="entryTable">
  <tr id="entryTableHeader"> 
   <td colspan="2">Misc. Configuration</td>
  </tr>
  <tr> 
   <td width="150" class="label">Currency</td>
   <td class="content"><select name="cboCurrency" id="cboCurrency" class="box">
<?php echo $currency; ?>
    </select>   </td>
  </tr>
  <tr> 
   <td width="150" class="label">Shipping Cost</td>
   <td class="content"><input name="txtShippingCost" type="text" class="box" id="txtShippingCost" value="<?php echo $sc_shipping_cost; ?>" size="5"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td class="label">Send Email on New Order </td>
    <td class="content"><input name="optSendEmail" type="radio" value="y" id="optEmail" <?php echo $sc_order_email == 'y' ? 'checked' : ''; ?> />
      <label for="optsEmail">Yes </label>
      <input name="optSendEmail" type="radio" value="n" id="optNoEmail" <?php echo $sc_order_email == 'n' ? 'checked' : ''; ?> />
      <label for="optNoEmail">No</label></td>
  </tr>
 </table>
 <p align="center"> 
  <input name="btnUpdate" type="submit" id="btnUpdate" value="Update Config" class="box">
 </p>
</form>

Thanks in advance!

I'm confused, where in the page do you want the '$' to show? Which tags or php line is responsible for showing the currency symbol?

0

The thing is the different currencies are in the database. So basically they will show everywhere where the price is: product list, admin panel with add new product, modify product etc etc...
And actually this is the place where the currency is "defined":

$currency = '';
while ($row = dbFetchAssoc($result)) {
	extract($row);
	$currency .= "<option value=\"$cy_id\"";
	if ($cy_id == $sc_currency) {
		$currency .= " selected";
	}
 
	$currency .= ">$cy_code</option>\r\n";
}

Why are you storing symbols in what should be a DECIMAL or BIGINT field? This makes all your amounts varchar or text?

Avoid FLOAT, as you get rounding errors. Also DECIMAL(10,2) is a bit iffy as some currencies are not based on 100 lesser units = 1 larger unit. Yen *I think* is just in integers.

I've seen some suggest using BIGINT. How about?

currency table
currency_id (auto)
currency_name (US Dollar, UK Pound, Egyptian Pound....)
currency_symbol ($,£,€)
symbol_position (0=pre | 1=suff)
decimal_places (0,2 etc)


symbol_position places symbols as prefix or suffix
decimal_places only req'd if you store amount as bigint.

/?EDIT

I apologise, just re-read your post, perhaps I got the wrong end of the stick.

The thing is, if the currency was only a $, I can kinda swallow that.
But with €, it really irritates me when the symbol is on the left. It just doesn't look right.
I've also read somewhere that there is something like :RIGHT, :LEFT that can be added, I just can't find where I read that.

:RIGHT, :LEFT

Is this for plaincart ? Or php in general. You've given v.little info here for us to go on. I can't see how the currency symbol will be displayed - have you included that info in the php? Sorry, can't see it.

0

The thing is, I used plaincart as a base, but now, I've worked on it so much, that it doesn't even look like plaincart. So basically, I'm asking about php code, not something that is connected exclusively to plaincart.
What I gave you as a code is the ONLY file where the currency is "declared". On the other files, the currency is nowhere mentioned.

Edited by didi00: n/a

Yeah well, the only thing your code does is place the currencies in a dropdown so the user can decide on his default currency. Is that right?

So, we are none the wiser. Have a look at the display pages, THEN post back.

Oh, sorry about that.
I think I found the file where the price connects with the currency.

it may be something as simple as

if($shopconfig['currency']=="€"||$shopconfig['currency']=="other currency with a preference for after") {
return  number_format($amount) . $shopConfig['currency']; } 
else { 
return $shopConfig['currency'] . number_format($amount);}

It didn't worked.
The only thing that this did was adding a ; between the price and the currency like this $;10

0
return $shopConfig['currency'] . number_format($amount);

That looks like it. OK should be simple now then. so based on AB's:

return ($shopConfig['currency'] == '€') ?  number_format($amount) . $shopConfig['currency'] : $shopConfig['currency'] . number_format($amount);

Depends how the euro symbols are stored in your DB. If htmlencoded use &euro; else use the utf-8 symbol.

Well I solved it.
The only thing that I did was, I switched the places of the variables on line 64.
Instead of

return $shopConfig['currency'] . number_format($amount);

I made it

return number_format($amount) . $shopConfig['currency'];

Guess sometimes the stupid ideas work:-)
Thanks for the support guys!:-)
