Decimal points

Understand decimal points for form fields

Applicable to the following fields:  percent , currency , and decimal .

This property dictates the maximum number of digits that your users can enter (in the above-mentioned fields) after the decimal point.

For example: When you set the  Decimal Points  property of a  decimal  field to 2, the below given is what happens when a user enters a decimal value that has more than 2 digits after the decimal point, and submits your form from a web browser:

  1. The  Invalid entries found  message appears in a pop-up window.

  2. Clicking  Okay  closes this pop-up and displays a message below that decimal field.

When your user does this same action from a phone/tablet:

  1. The  Invalid entries found  message appears in a pop-up window.
  2. Clicking  Done  closes this pop-up and displays a message below that decimal field.
  1. Understand fields
