A request to be able to change the decimal separator to a comma and thousands separator to a dot. This should be set per organisation or should follow the browser localization settings.
In Europe (and a lot of other countries) this causes confusion when entering/reading numbers.
I know this can be modified using textfields/inputs and JS, but this is way too much work and should be simpler.
Any update on this? I’m planning on building a calculation app and it requires a lot of numeric fields with decimals. Not being able to use the num pad when using another OS/browser language than english is pretty annoying. I don’t want to work with text field and convert everything using js.
Now when you’re using for example Dutch OS language, when you press the decimal key on the numpad, it would try to enter a comma as a decimal, but the numeric field won’t except the comma and 10 euro and 50 cents (10,50) would be entered as 1050 euros.
Yes, correct, I know that we can change that, but I don't want to change it. Our users in Europe might have Dutch, German or Polish as the default language and to make the numpad work properly, I'd need to change their default to English. But this would change the complete behavior of the browser.
I just need the input field to accept either a dot or a comma as a decimal separator depending on what language has been set.
