Hello Anshul,

Which scenarios have you tried? What are the issues you're running into?

I've wrote an article about this component: https://itnext.io/currencies-in-practice-or-the-story-of-implementing-a-currency-converter-in-outsystems-367c90723aa3

Cheers!

Hi Armando,


I have read the above mentioned post and I have used the CalculateConversions function but the results returned by this function are incorrect.

What I want to do: I want to convert one currency to another by providing a base currency. Could you please guide me on how that can be done using the Fixer forge component.Also, I want to get a list of all the Exchange Rate.


Anshul,

The free version only allows EUR to be the base currency. I think there's a function to do a three-way conversion, using EUR as the base currency. There is also a function to return all the exchange rates, although the base currency will be always EUR - free version again.

Please share what you've done with us, so we can help.

Cheers!
