Force Text Input Format Number to Comma or Dot?

 

So, when I type 1000000 in that field, its automatically force to 1.000.000, how to do that?

Hi redlyst,

 

You can try the Text() function to format numbers using commas and periods.

I'm not sure how you can format input numbers while typing though - functions generally get applied to an existing value.

 

To illustrate;

 

Create Text Input TextInput1 and set the Format property to TextFormat.Number 

Create Text Label Label1

 

Set the Text property of Label1 to;

Text(Value(TextInput1.Text),"[$-en-US]###,###,###.00")

The Text() function with number formatting looks for a number to apply the formatting to, hence the Value() function wrapper.

 

What you type into the input will be replicated to the label, but with formatting.

Like I said though, formatting as you type, or pre-formatting input controls is not something I know how to do.  You could possibly put the input field over the label and make it transparent to give an effect of formatting as you type...but this could have weird results when tabbing through or selecting everything in the input control, unless it's 100% aligned.

 

Hope this helps,

You can set the default value of the inputbox with a variable, after which you set the variable to the newly input value, and then reset the value of the input text field.

On the default value of the field:

 

Set(Variable,Text(Value(TextInput1.Text),"[$-en-US]###,###,###.00"));Reset(TextInput1)

Apologies, the formuyla should be on the OnChange field, and the default value of the field should be changed to the variable name
