How to read this table?

The first column shows the possible values of the left fill picture: Blank, Blank when zero and Zero of this property.

The 'INPUT' column shows the numeric type used for the example - in this case, a variable of type N(7,2), - and for each left fill property value, shows the value that is generated AUTOMATICALLY in the 'Picture'.

The 'OUTPUT' column shows:

1) Examples of values that the Variable can take (i.e. 0 and 123.5 on left fill table)
2) How GeneXus format that value, according to the value of the left fill property

For example, on left fill property, on a Numeric(7,2), when selected value is "Blank", on Picture property changes to ZZZ9.99 automatically, and when that variable is assigned "123.5", it shows on screen "123.50".
