I am just trying to accomplish what seems to be a simple task, but am spending my entire day getting nowhere.

I'm looking for a script that will format numbers into a textbox as whole USD amounts and prevent any non-numbers from being entered. Also, whenever the user enters the first number, it's important that a dollar sign appear to the left of the total. After each 3 numbers, a comma will indicate the thousand's place.

E.g.

0 key -
1 key - $1
2 key - $13
3 key - $134
4 key - $1,345
5 key - $13,450
6 key - $134,500
7 key - $1,345,000
etc...

Can someone help put this together, please?
Thank you

Thank you ansudhindra. Looks good. Very close to what I am looking for...

Is there any way to make it so that the code will format AS the user types?

For instance...

If you start typing 3344 it shows as 3344

But only AFTER you click outside of the textbox it converts to $3,344

Get what I'm saying..? Not entirely necessary, but that is the overall goal here.

Anyway to convert this field to 'whole numbers' (no cents)?

Also, can it be 'blank' on load?

Functions well, otherwise.

Thanks

Thanks for the update. I don't know why, but I'm having trouble implenting this on my site :/ I've spent too much time on this already, and don't want to hassle you any more into perfecting this.

Anyway... Both solutions are good, but I'm going to stick with ansudhindra's answer for my particular need, given that I've been able to implement it without any trouble - I made a small adjustment to restrict the field to numbers, but that is it. Works great.

I'm sure that folks will find both of these solutions useful in the future.

Thanks again for your time! Cheers
