GNOME Spread Sheet task list
* Format engine
The format engine needs to support the following format styles:
That format has four regions separated by ";", they are:
0.0 -- format for positive numbers
(0.0) -- format for negative numbers
"Zero" -- format for the zero number
@ -- format for anything else
This default ordering can be modified if condition specifiers are
included, like this:
[>10]0.0;[>0]"Bigger than zero"0;"None"
If the *first* field includes the condition ([>10]), then the
default 4 components assumed is dropped, and then an arbitrary number
of conditional formats can be specified. The last format is always
the default used in case none of the conditions match.
In the above example:
numbers bigger than 10 would get the format:
numbers bigger than 0 (but less than 10 as they would have matched
the previous rule) get this format:
"Bigger than zero"0
And the rest gets:
Text can be included in a format with quotation marks:
"X="0.0 would render 5.4 like this: "X=5.4"
The use of the backslash should escape the next character (just like
quoting the next character).
** Color specification:
After the condition specifier or at the beginning of the section if
no condition specifier exists, a color can be specified, like this:
** Special keywords:
The "General" special keyword should just use the output of
sprintf "%g".
** Day/Minute rules
"m" Shows the month as a number without any leading zeros (ie,
1..12). If "m" is used inmediately after "h" or "hh" this should
render minutes instead of months.
"mm" Shows the month as a number with a leading zero if
required (01..12). If "mm" is used inmediately after
"h" or "hh" this should render the minutes instead of a
"mmm" Shows the month as an abbreviation (Jan-Dic)
"mmmm" Shows the name as a full name (Jannuary-December)
"d" Shows the day number wihtout leading zeros (1..31)
"dd" Shows the day number with a leading zero (01..31)
"ddd" Shows the day name as an abbreviation (Sat..Sun)
"dddd" Shows the full day name (Saturday..Sunday)
"yy", "yyyy" Shows the years as a number with two digits (00-99) or
as four digits (1900-2078).
"h" or "hh" Shoes the hour with or without leading zeros. if "AM"
or "PM" is present on the format the 12-hour clock is
used, otherwise the 24-hour clock is used.
"m" or "mm" same for minutes
"s" or "ss" same for seconds.
AM/am/A/a Shows the hour using th 12-hour clock. Gnumerc should show
PM/pm/p/p "AM", "am", "M" or "a" for the hours between midnight
and noon and "PM", "pm", "P" or "p" for the hours
between noon and midnight.
If no indicator is used, the hour should be displayed in
the 24-hour format.
