I have two JTextFields in my application that I want to have the input masked as standard US currency. For example:
 Lets say someone goes to a JTextField and enters in 1050 in a the field. The output will look more like $1050.00 in the field. I would like to prevent them from being able to enter in any non-numeric keys, except a decimal.

Have a look at the following link:

http://www.enteract.com/~goose/java/

It has very nice examples of how to write such masks as you are trying to make. With some adjusting you can use the classes provided there to do what you want to do.
