Is there a way to conditionally change the currency symbol of a decimal datatype based on the value of a drop down list?

My preference would be to figure out how to implement this by programmatically changing the data type/currency property of the textbox (or underlying XSLT?), not by adding a label off to the side of the textbox.

Can it be done?

Cheers, Bob

This is not a real answer but I was looking to do the same and was not able to find a solution. We ended up creating two views, but still have problem a problem with decimal separator. – Toni Frankola Mar 24 '11 at 16:59
