I found an answer to this but it was dated 2011. Was wondering if this function was available now??
(My form asks for a dollar amount for the cost of an AD. I would like to have it entered with a dollar sign.)

Are you referring to this form: http://www.jotform.us/form/50276207253147? And you want to force your users to enter a dollar sign on the Invitation cost field?
If so, you could try using an input mask to include the $ sign on that field.
This will force the use of the $ sign when a value is entered in the text box.
Please give it a try and let us know if it helps.

Yes, that works, however, I don't want to limit the amount of numbers to go in the box following the dollar sign. The dollar amounts could vary from 2 digits to 4 digits.
I did try unmarking the "Fill Mask Validation" and that enabled me to not have to have 4 digits. But if I just put in 2 digits, then it leaves a left over dash mark and I'm afraid the uses may get confused.
Does that make sense???

Ok, I made further testings and, unfortunately, this is the only way I found to accomplish this. To avoid confusions to your users, you may use a default value for them to see how they should enter this value. For example, something like this:
So, this should allow your users to know that if they want to enter a value of $12 they should enter $0012.
I hope this helps.
If you have further questions, please let us know.

thanks for looking further into it. i might do what you suggested. i might also check into the source code stuff, however, sometimes, that just confuses me even more...lol!
worse case scenario, the field won't contain a dollar sign. the world won't end if i have to do that :)
