Creating custom Numeric Field pattern with text

Avatar

Level 3

I am attempting to create a validation pattern for the Numeric Field which will accept:

232000

And have the formatted value display:

232,000 KM

Obviously, the program will handle the:

232,000

display pattern, and that the money pattern will accept the dollar sign text symbol.

But... how can I get the display to show:

232,000 KM

when a string of numbers is entered. I also need the formatted value for use elsewhere within the document, so, the formatted.Value must return the

232,000 KM

string.

thank you...

Hi,

You can add text strings to the display pattern, inside single quotation marks/apostrophes. For example:

num{zzz,zz9' km'}

This will display:

10, as 10 km

232000 as 232,000 km

Example here: https://acrobat.com/#d=ZtMHjwuMyDhXOVzbBqzHSA

Good luck,

Niall
