Known Limitations

To keep its value, the NumericTextBox uses the Number JavaScript object. The Number JavaScript object persists its precision up to 16 digits, and units which are longer than that get converted to exponential numbers and lose their precision. Because the component relies on Number, it inherits the precision limitation and because the limitation is caused by the JavaScript logic, the NumericTextBox does not provide a workaround to handle it.
