# Dotted number in caption

How to put something (a colon or dot for example) after the float number in a caption?

\let\floatcaptionsuffix=:

 \placefigure[fig:cow]{cow}{\externalfigure[cow]}  \let\floatcaptionsuffix=: \placefigure[fig:cow]{cow}{\externalfigure[cow]} 
 TODO: This page could use some more description, and maybe elaboration with other float caption options. (See: To-Do List)

For sections:

\def\Dot#1{#1.}
\setuplist[section][numbercommand=\Dot]
\setuplist[subsection][numbercommand=\Dot]
\setuplist[subsubsection][numbercommand=\Dot]

\starttext

\completecontent

\section{abc}
\subsection{def}

\stoptext


Somewhat surprisingly, \setuphead does have some inheritance built in, but for the table of contents, all section levels must be treated individually.

Another trick to achieve the same:

\setuplabeltext
[sl]
[chapter={{},{.}}]

\starttext
\chapter{English}
without a dot

\mainlanguage[sl]
\chapter{Slovenian}
having one

\stoptext
