How is currency formatted in the sap.m.ObjectNumber API

We use the sap.m.ObjectNumber to display the number formatted based on the currency key as shown below. I have issues with formatting of the USD vs EUR. The decimal and thousand separator shows the same as shown below. For EUR, I except ',' as decimal seperator and '.' as thousand separator. For USD, I except the opposite. My understanding is that it is formatted based on the regional settings of your computer. However, when I tried to change it , it does not reflect in the UI. Anybody ,please explain how is this thing working.

<ObjectNumber class="sapUiSmallMarginBottom" binding="{/ProductCollection/0}"
number="{ parts:[{path:'Price'},{path:'CurrencyCode'}], type: 'sap.ui.model.type.Currency', formatOptions: {showMeasure: false} }"
unit="{CurrencyCode}" numberUnit="{CurrencyCode}"/>

      your code works, but you are doing hardcoding and won't satisfy his expectation.

      he expects "," as decimal point for EURO and "." for USD. he wants this to happen automatically.
