Hi experts,
I have several editable numeric fields formatted as % in a form.
For user "ease" I am trying find a solution to enable a "%" to be appended to the number that the user inputs, to eliminate notes translation ie. 5 to 500%, and the user not having to put % after everything they enter.

Any Suggestions ??

Thanks
Craig.

It is not possible to append % and still keep the value of the field as numeric...What you can do is enable percent for the field... but in input translation divide the field value by 100.

eg:

numberfield/100

If the percentage value is always less than or equal to 100%, then try adding this in the field translation:

@If(@ThisValue>1;@ThisValue/100;@ThisValue)

I would add a separate computed notation right next to the main field, in a different font, that shows the value entered as a per cent value, inlucding the % symbol.  That way, there are no issues of input validation, number conversion, applying the % reduction more than once (20 -> .2 -> .002), etc.  User enters 15, an right next to it you have the text "%", and right next to that, you have a parenthetical (0.15).
