Keep Currency formatting after during and after editing

Hi

 

I have a form with a text field that is displaying currency

I set the default to the following and the text field initially displays the entry as US currency

 

             Text(Value(Parent.Default),"[$-en-US]$ ###,###.00","en-US")

 

As soon as I change the form to edit mode and select the field and edit the value, it loses all formatting as shown below

 

Note - The Weighted Amount field has not been clicked on and edited while the form is in edit mode while the Amount field initially displayed properly, then I click on it and it loses all formattting while the form is in Edit mode....

 

Question - What is the trick to keep the formatting of the text field during and after editing of a text field within a datacard

Re: Keep Currency formatting after during and after editing

No, there is no direct format property avaialble for the TextInput control.

Please consider submit it as an idea under PowerApps idea forum, if you prefer to add a property for that:

A similar one

 

Further, a possible workaorund you may give it a try:

 

TextInput1.OnChange = UpdateContext({FormatValue: Text(Value(TextInput1.Text),"[$-en-US]$ ###,###.00","en-US")})

TextInput1.Default = FormatValue

 

You might need to first set the FormatValue with with navigate to the Edit screen.

 

Text(Value(Parent.Default),"[$-en-US]$ ###,###.00","en-US")
