Easy to work with currency rates in a Xojo app by downloading a standard rate list? Anyone experience? Thanks!
I am assuming that you wish to convert amounts from one currency to an equivalent amount in a second currency. Basically, I would load (and update) the exchange rate table downloaded from your source into a SQLite (or other) database. Then it is just the matter of a simple select with the from-currency, the To-currency and the date to get the factor to apply to your from-currency.
For the most popular currencys the ECB offers a daily updated file with the exchange rates: Euro foreign exchange reference rates
You can download as csv or xml and then parse the contents and work with the rates…
Thanks Thomas, will make it work with the ECB file!
Thanks, was actually looking for the rate file to be downloaded.
