Hi Guys,
Does any one have a function to validate a textbox with format like 99.99?
Also, if the value doesn't have cents or decimals as soon as the cursor leaves the textbox it should add .00 to the amount.
I'm working with ASP.

Thanks
Carol

if you don't want $ sign, use

<script language="javascript">
            function formatCurrency(num) {

     num = num.toString().replace(/\$|\,/g,'');
     if(isNaN(num))
          num = "0";
     sign = (num == (num = Math.abs(num)));
     num = Math.floor(num*100+0.50000000001);
     cents = num%100;
     num = Math.floor(num/100).toString();

     if(cents<10)
          cents = "0" + cents;
     for (var i = 0; i < Math.floor((num.length-(1+i))/3); i++)
          num = num.substring(0,num.length-(4*i+3))+','+
          num.substring(num.length-(4*i+3));
   
     return (((sign)?'':'-')  + num + '.' + cents);
}

</script>

then call it from onchange event of a textbox:

<input type="text" name="text1" onchange="this.value = FormatCurrency(this.value);">
