    Better masked input functionality to handle currency?

    Asked by ROCGPerth on July 11, 2017 at 04:30 AM
    It would help if you could just include a masked input option for the existing number field. Unfortunately, you cannot use a Masked Input Widget field in a calculation, only as a total of a calculation as mentioned above. I still baffled by the fact that there is soooo much functionality in JotForm but I cannot display my dollar amounts in a currency format. No, I cannot use the Masked Input widget in my scenario. The alternative is to fix the Masked Input widget so that it CAN be used in calculations - either way, can we PLEASE have some way of displaying monetary amounts correctly. We are Accountants so we when we publish forms to end users, it looks very silly us not using decimal places and thousands separators!  Many thanks.

    May I know if you have checked the default "Text box" field/"Short Text Entry" field? 


    If you open the "Properties" of that field, you should be able to see the "Input Mask" option. 


    You can learn more about this option in this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/381-Getting-Started-with-the-basics-of-Input-Masking

    For the decimal places, you can set it in the advance options when performing calculations using the Form Calculation widget or the Conditional logic. Below is an example, in the calculation wizard, if you clicked the "..." button, that will open additional settings.  

    The additional settings will allow you to use math functions or set up decimal places and it's separator.


    I'm also not sure how your inputs work. If the above option does not work, please let us know and we'll check if we have an existing solution for it. 

    I hope that helps.
