Subject Numeric Entry in a Grid
Author Bob
This is probably an easy question. I have a column in a grid that allows the
user to enter numbers, and while they're entering I want to show and allow
them to enter two decimal places.

I have played with edit masks and am close to what I want with a mask of
99.99;1;0. It fails when the user types "1.23" by returning "1 23". If I
change the mask to 99.99;0;0 I can make "1.23" (user doesn't type the
decimal) turn into "123.00" which is also not correct. Also mask of
"99.99;1; " turns "1.22" into "1 .22".

I could go on, but you get my point -- that is, I'm stuck. I think I'm just
missing something simple here. I want the user to be able to enter two
digits to the left of the decimal, and two to the right, and show them two
digits (zeros) to the right while they are entering.

Thanks for your help.
