PHPMaker 2018 Extensions – MasinoAutoFormatNumber14 (Miscellaneous)

OVERVIEW

This is a PHPMaker 2018 Extension that will add the ability of auto format the numeric field type (Currency, Number, Percent) in your web applications that generated by PHPMaker. It supports to display the Thousand and Decimal separator, both for monetary and non-monetary values on the Add and Edit form.

When your end-users are typing the values on the Add and Edit forms, then it will automatically insert the Thousand and/or the Decimal separator character. They will feel more comfortable while inputing/updating the numeric values.

This Extension also supports Locale Settings that you defined from your PHPMaker project. In other words, now you don’t have to always use the Comma (,) character as the Thousand separator, and/or the Dot (.) character as the Decimal separator anymore.

However, for calculating process, make sure to always setup Comma (,) as Thousand separator, and Dot (.) as Decimal separator.
