Description Colin Campbell 2013-07-02 13:16:40 UTC
The routine patronflags in C4::Members sets messages if patron owes or is credited with an amount of money. Unfortunately for those of us not using dollars as our currency. The amounts appearing in these messages is hardcoded to be preceded by $ it should be more sensitive to the configuration.

One of the places this message is displayed is on self issue machines, which being public facing cause libraries some embarrasment

Bug 10529: Remove hardcoded dollar from patron message

The message fields which are returned in the SIP
Screen message field in a Patron Information response
had dollar hardcoded.
It would be possible to get the symbol from currency
but omitting any symbol would be consistent with the UI
and avoid problems with devices using weird encodings
for local currency symbols (e.g. the many variations
of UK Pound sign)
