change format of a number


i have a SPList and i use new-display-edit forms to create and display my records..  My list has a column number (with use thousand separator on from Sharepoint column settings).  I submit a record with  the value 3.400,28  to that column and everything seems ok. but after that if i go to display mode the value will be :  3400.28 

this value is about money 3.400,28 € so i want this format. 


On sharepoint  i can see that the value is 3.400,28 but i want also the app show my value on the same format. 

thanks in advance.

It is actually stored in SharePoint as 3400.28.  The reason it shows as you see it is based on your regional settings of the list.

For PowerApps, you can utilize the Text function for this in the Default property of your TextInput control, or the Text property of a Label.

   Text(yourNumber, "#,##0.00", "ca-ES")  

This is using the Spanish language tag.  You can replace with your own if supported or just use that one.

For your number 3400.28 -    Text(3400.28, "#,##0.00", "ca-ES")  will produce - 3.400,00


I hope this is helpful for you.
