Hi,

When I paste the value "12,234" into the Numeric Input box (see below), the control thinks that the comma is a decimal place. This is very confusing for our users, as they have to remove the decimal place. How can I fix this?

Thanks,
Tim

<telerik:RadNumericTextBox ID="txtSalaryTo" runat="server" ShowSpinButtons="true">  
    <NumberFormat DecimalDigits="0" DecimalSeparator="." GroupSeparator="," GroupSizes="3" AllowRounding="false" /> 
    <IncrementSettings Step="1000" /> 
    <ClientEvents OnKeyPress="KeyPress_Salary" /> 
</telerik:RadNumericTextBox>

Hello Tim,

You can test this sample approach:
function ValueChanging(sender, args) 
    var newValue = ""
    var oldValue = sender.get_textBoxValue(); 
    var result = oldValue.split(','); 
    for (var i = 0; i < result.length; i++) 
    { 
        newValue += result[i]; 
    } 
    args.set_newValue(newValue); 

<telerik:RadNumericTextBox ID="txtSalaryTo" runat="server" ShowSpinButtons="true"
    <NumberFormat DecimalDigits="0" DecimalSeparator="." GroupSeparator="," GroupSizes="3" 
        AllowRounding="false" /> 
    <IncrementSettings Step="1000" /> 
    <ClientEvents OnKeyPress="KeyPress_Salary" OnValueChanging="ValueChanging" /> 
</telerik:RadNumericTextBox>

We are having the same problem as the original poster, and we implemented the solution suggested by Daniel and it works great. However, we use the RadNumericTextBox on a lot of places in our application, and we were hoping to find a more global solution. We put the function in the javascript file that is used for all pages, but that still leaves us with having to edit every RadNumericTextBox control's settings individually.

I tried putting the ClientEvents-OnValueChanging setting into a custom skin, but we get a compile error:

Literal content ('<telerik:RadNumericTextBox ClientEvents-OnValueChanging="ValueChanging" />') is not allowed within a 'skin file'.

Is there a global way to accomplish what we are trying to do here?

After doing a little more research I realized I had left the 'runat="server"' out of the entry in the skin file. That was what was actually causing the error, not the ClientEvents setting itself. Everything works fine now and we have our global solution. Problem solved.
