Replacing period decimal with a comma decimal

Trying to use this code on shop site

Hi Jason,

I changed the code again, so I would get a decimal point for English and a decimal comma for German:

<?php $number = $row_rspricetable['price'];
if ( $_SESSION['languageID'] == "1" ) {
$row_rspricetable['price'] = number_format($number, 2, ',', '.');

And it works, as you can see here: detail.php?recordID=53

I would like to do the same on the shop site, but the code did not work for there. I am guessing, because the number format is already defined. I tried deleting that code, but with that the page broke.

function WA_eCart_GetGroupDecimalChars($numDisplay) {

$theDec = substr(strval(99/10), 1, 1);

$theDecimal = "";

$theComma = "";

if ($numDisplay == 0 || $numDisplay == 2) {

$theDecimal = ".";

if ($numDisplay == 0) {

$theComma = ",";



else {

$theDecimal = ",";

if ($numDisplay == 1) {

$theComma = ".";



return array($theDec, $theComma, $theDecimal);


function WA_eCart_DisplayMoney($theObject, $theAmount) {

$decInfo = WA_eCart_GetGroupDecimalChars($theObject->NumberDisplay);

return WA_eCart_MaskWeightMoney($theAmount, $theObject->CurrencyPrefix, $theObject->CurrencyAlign, $decInfo[1], $decInfo[2], $theObject->ForceDecimalsC, $theObject->DecimalPlacesC);


On the shop site I am dealing with six languages. I would like to use decimal point for English and Spanish, decimal comma for all other languages.

Can this be achieved? It might be a nice feature for eCart.
