DatacardValue format as Currency and decimal

Hello there I am having this issue:

 

I know that whern your are showing data you can use this formula to represent the cyrrencly symbol, ant is works fine :

 

Text('Assessed_x0020_$$',"[$-en-US]$,###,##.##")

 

But I cannot figure out on how to do it in a Tex input field "Datacarvalue"

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Regards

Hi @sajarac,

 

The formula only works for Label control and the Default property of the TextInput control.

The format of the Value inputted with the TextInput control only have two type:

Text or Number

Which you could note from the Format property of the TextInput control.

Currently there is no way to format the value inputted to the one defined in the Text() function.

 

Besides, if you would like to format the TextInput.text in a Label control, then the formula should be:

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

The function used here only works with number, so here we use Value() function to convert the TextInput.text into number format.

Re: DatacardValue format as Currency and decimal

Thank you very much for your reply, so correct me if I am wrong, there is no way to a input text field apply some kind of format like a currency format?

 

is there any change that you guys will implement a toolbar like the "Align" or "Font" to just select format?

 

Any other solution? I really want that my users when they are typing data get the right format, instead of guess if the numbers are correct? i,e 123456789 , $123,456.789

 

Many thanks

Is there anything new about this topic? I have the same problem, I would like to change the format when entering an amount. 10000 -> 10000.00
