Formating number with decimal places

Hello,

 

I am creating an app that needs many numerical inputs with decimal places to the hundredths place.

 

1. Is there a way to activate the decimal point with the number pad?

I have tried changing the format and the virtual keyboard in different combinations with no luck.

 

2. Can I assign a specific numeric format with a starting value beforehand to avoid needing the decimal on the number pad? All inputs will replace old numbers and decimal will remain in the same place

ex:

Starting Value = 0.00

Input Value = 325

Data card format = 3.25

 

Thanks

Hi @mostlyquestions ,'

Put this on the OnChange of your Text Box

UpdateContext({vDec:Value(Self.Text)/100});
Reset(Self)

Then this on the Default

If(
   vDec>0,
   vDec,
   Parent.Default
)

Then ensure on any exit screen or save function that you put this

UpdateContext({vDec:0})
