Intro

SAP Fiori applications are often used in an international context, and therefore need to be designed to adapt to different locales. Consistent rules for data formatting and characteristic data styles make the apps easy to work with, while enabling users to solve seamless workflows with cross-border processes and communication.

Types

Formatters can be applied to different types of data. SAPUI5 provides formatting capabilities to format dates, time, and numbers. It is also important to consider general rules of formatting when units of measurement are displayed.
