I'm sorry about the my ambiguous question. Ok now, I placed a maskedit on my form and set the  "Mask" property to "RM #,###,###.##", and then I key in 1234 into the maskedit. When this maskedit lost the focus, the content of the maskedit become "RM 1,234,.". And if I erase the "Mark" property and set the "Format" to "RM #,###,###.00", if I key in "1234" again, when the maskedit lost the focus, the content get formated to "R5,#,###,###.00". How do I get "RM 1,234.00" when the maskedit lost the focus.
