Numeric Field Pattern Not Accepting

Avatar

Level 2

I have 2 questions regarding a numeric field. When a value such as 250.00- is pasted into the field, livecycle is not accepting this pattern. I would like to change the pattern so this value is accepted. In addition, I would like to move the negative sign to in front (to the left) of the number.

Hi,

to move the minus sign from the right to the left use this edit pattern:

num{zz9.88S}

and this display pattern:

num{Szz9.99}

I have a similar but different question regarding Patters and a Numeric field. I would like to have a percent. When user inputs a number with one decimal point e.g. 2.3 I would like that number to automatically change to 2.3%. Just with the numeric pattern. I have added code to the enter to null the value and other code in the exit to divide number by 100 with the following format. This approach does not work well. Just wondering if the pattern itself can be manipulated to accommodate.
