Keypad needs to display Currency and/or %, Masking returns inaccurate number formatting
Expanding on a previous thread, my customers and designers are continually frustrated by inability to enter numbers including currency ($) or Percent (%) signs.
Additionally, masking elements do not properly display numbers. The frequency with which I hear this from existing and new users is becoming a concern.
1) The number and punctuation keypad is cumbersome, slows data entry and does not mirror the standards of virtually any other data entry platform. Currency and Percentage signs should be standard - They should not require formatting in an additional element for display (i.e. "$"+previous_element.formatMoney(0, '.', ',');)
2) Default masking incorrectly displays numeric entry (Currency in this example).
Mask is configured as #,###,999,999.99
The user enters 25036. Logic dictates that the number should be displayed as 25,036. Instead, the result is 2,503,6.
Thanks so much for posting. In regards to the number element and the need to add currency and/or percentage, have you tried using the Text Element and using the Keyboard type "Number and Punctuation"?
Nonetheless, these would make a great enhancement. I'll be sure to share with the team and hopefully, this can get some traction here in the community as well. Thanks again!
