Using $ Sign in Decimal Field

I'm trying to create a form where the user enters a $ sign in the field for Hourly Wages. When the user enters the dollar sign, the field takes it and the number entered, but when the user hits tab or enter, it shows up blank. I've tried numerous combinations on the Object Tab, but I'm apparently missing something. Is there a way to set it so that it displays, for example, $23.50 whether or not the user enters $23.50 or 23.50? That would be the best result since I really don't know how a user is going to enter the data in the field--with or without the $ sign. Thanks.
