text_field should show translated separator on BigDecimal fields

Reported by Alessandro Zarrilli | December 15th, 2008 @ 01:45 AM

In a lot of european countries you use a comma to separate decimals instead of a dot: text_field doesn't currently care about number/format/separator specified in the yml localization file. Or maybe it's ActiveRecord responsability to translate the separator? Or maybe it's BigDecimal creator/getter/setter responsability to translate the separator?

NB: I tried to overwrite BigDecimal creator/getter/setter: everything is fine until you do an SQL update. MySQL adapter calls to_s on the BigDecimal object, and of course MySQL doesn't like a decimal field containing a comma!
