    Available only to Short Text Entry fields, you can validate your respondents' entry by choosing a validation format from the field's properties.

    You may want to use the Input Masking feature to have the validation precision you need.

    Let us know if this feature will still not work for you.

    Thanks. I just looked though and the Input Mask does not provide for this request. It appears to get a number to format as a currency, a much simpler operation than most which are available, you have to use some sort of payment widget. Is that correct?

    Can you please check Masked Input widget here. I think it is  what you were looking for.

    It has multiple validation property options.
