    The decimal key can appear in two places on the US keyboard, in the bottom row of main keys to the right of 'M', or in an optional numeric keypad.  The behavior should be the same regardless of which key is used to enter a decimal. However, NumericTextBox will ignore the decimal key from the numeric keyboard when this is the first character of the entry, as in '.25'.
    The workaround is to enter '0.25', or not use the numeric keypad.  In production environments with financial professionals, it would be ridiculous to advise against using the numeric keypad, and it is at least annoying for them to remember the workaround.
    These keys, which I understand have different scan codes, work identically in ALL other circumstances. It would be greatly appreciated if they would work identically in this particular boundary condition as well.

    Hi Floyd,

    Please make sure that the NUMLOCK state on the keyboard is the correct one, otherwise the decimal dot key acts as a DEL key.

    I am not able to reproduce any other problem with the numeric keypad's decimal dot key and I am using a US keyboard layout.
