Currency conversion example

  1. Below see the partial code from SampleCurrency, converting from one currency to another:

    var currency = new Currency
        Type = (CurrencyTypes)this.SourceCurrencyType.GetSelectedValue<CurrencyTypes>(),
        Value = this.Amount.Text.To<decimal>(),
    // doing the conversation
    this.Result.Content = currency.Convert((CurrencyTypes)this.TargetCurrencyType.GetSelectedValue<CurrencyTypes>()).Value;
  2. The following shall be written to find out the conversion rate:

    // Euro into USD
    var rate = CurrencyTypes.EUR.Convert(CurrencyTypes.USD);
  3. Additionally, the S# provides ability to find out the conversion rate history:

    // Euro into USD (prev day)
    var rate = CurrencyTypes.EUR.Convert(CurrencyTypes.USD, DateTime.Today - TimeSpan.FromDays(1));
