Possible values are the ISO 4217 currency codes, such as "USD" for the US dollar, "EUR" for the euro, or "CNY" for the Chinese RMB — see the Current currency & funds code list. There is no default value; if the style is "currency", the currency property must be provided.

useGrouping

Whether to use grouping separators, such as thousands separators or thousand/lakh/crore separators. Possible values are true and false; the default is true.


The following properties fall into two groups:

  • minimumIntegerDigits, minimumFractionDigits, maximumFractionDigits
  • minimumSignificantDigits, maximumSignificantDigits

If at least one property from the second group is defined, then the first group is ignored.

minimumIntegerDigits

The minimum number of integer digits to use. Possible values are from 1 to 21; the default is 1.

minimumFractionDigits

The minimum number of fraction digits to use. Possible values are from 0 to 20; the default for plain number and percent formatting is 0; the default for currency formatting is the number of minor unit digits provided by the ISO 4217 currency code list (2 if the list doesn't provide that information).

maximumFractionDigits

The maximum number of fraction digits to use. Possible values are from 0 to 20; the default for plain number formatting is the larger of minimumFractionDigits and 3; the default for currency formatting is the larger of minimumFractionDigits and the number of minor unit digits provided by the ISO 4217 currency code list (2 if the list doesn't provide that information); the default for percent formatting is the larger of minimumFractionDigits and 0.

minimumSignificantDigits

The minimum number of significant digits to use. Possible values are from 1 to 21; the default is 1.
