Hi,

I'm using the RadMaskedCurrencyInput in a no mask scenario (Mask="") and I want to allow the users to type "1k" and get the value pushed back to the underlying viewmodel as 1000.  I've looked at the source code and the available overrides, and I can't see a suitable place to achieve this.  Any ideas?

Hi Scott ,

The RadMaskedCurrencyInput is made to accept digits and this is why I would suggest you to use RadMaskedTextInput control. In order to push back the value you have entered multiplied by 1000 when "k" is typed, simply use a converter for the MaskedTextInput's Value property. Depending on the input if it ends with "k" return the value you would expect.

Hope this helps.

Looks like a possible workaround is

 

protected override void ProcessChar(char inputSymbol)
{
    if (inputSymbol == 'k' || inputSymbol == 'K')
    {
        base.ProcessChar('0');
        base.ProcessChar('0');
        base.ProcessChar('0');
    }
    else if (inputSymbol == 'm' || inputSymbol == 'M')
    {
        base.ProcessChar('0');
        base.ProcessChar('0');
        base.ProcessChar('0');
        base.ProcessChar('0');
        base.ProcessChar('0');
        base.ProcessChar('0');
    }
    else base.ProcessChar(inputSymbol);
}
