Currency Format When Typing in PowerApp Field

I have a SharePoint list that I customized with PowerApps.  One of the fields is a currency field, which displays correctly in SharePoint once submitted, but in PowerApps, there are no commas or decimals, so inputting something like 1,000 would show as 1000 in PowerApps. I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scCV3BQs-Cs

Which helped me to add the $, but the rest of the formula doesn't help with adding the commas and decimals

 

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

 

Is there a way to achieve this or am I doing something wrong?

Your formula should be fine for displaying *existing* values, but if you are looking for the Text input to have that format as you enter it, then this is not available today.

There is an Idea in the idea forum that you can vote on for it.

It still shows as new and was submitted in 2017...so, your mileage may vary.

 

I hope that guides you a bit.
