Description Jesper Jensen 2017-02-06 15:15:08 UTC
When using the Stepper on a Danish region Phone, i am unable to use comma in my entry fields.

I want to enter "1,8" but it is converted to "18".

I believe the root cause, is the way Stepper converts to Double
Taken from the source at GitHub:

coerceValue: (bindable, value) =>
			var stepper = (Stepper)bindable;
			stepper.Value = stepper.Value.Clamp(stepper.Minimum, (double)value);
			return value;

I Believe the Conversion should be CultureAware, like the Convert.ToDouble() method:
Convert.ToDouble Method (String, IFormatProvider)

More testing done on my part.

My Bug report is wrong, The code i mention is not the culprit.
The Issue remains thou.

Somewhere in Xamarin Binding, there is a Culture-unaware parsing of doubles, that causes Comma to be removed.

Two test cases i made:

string input = "1,9";
double output = double.Parse(input);
Assert.AreEqual(19D, output);

string input = "1,9";
double output = double.Parse(input, new CultureInfo("da-DK"));
Assert.AreEqual(1.9D, output);

This appears to be expected behavior per bug 36417.

Since this would be a feature change in Forms, it would be best suited as a proposal in our Evolution forum[1] for future consideration. When submitting a proposal on the Evolution forum, be sure to first read the contribution guidelines[2] so your proposal is ready for discussion with the Forms team and community. Thanks!
