Kinetic - Change Text Box Format

Good morning,
I have made a customization to a Kinetic form. I added a text box, and setup an event to populate it. The text box shows a decimal value.
Can I force the kinetic text box to show a percentage value instead? Is it one of the properties in Application Studio, or do I have to change my event to modify the decimal value to a percentage before it populates the text box?
Thank you for your time!

@NateS , did you ever find out how to do this?

I did not. Sorry! I swept this aside as another reason not to even try with kinetic customizations. Wow this was in 2021! I still don’t have any useable kinetic customizations. All our users are still deeply entrenched in classic forms.

If you or anyone else knows how, I would love to add it to my list of tricks. Good luck!

Doesn't work.

The numeric box allows for percentages.

Nevermind–turns out that doesn’t do anything. :thinking:

Nate… I know this is an old post, but I stumbled on this while I was looking for something else. If you use a numeric box instead of a text box, you will have more options to format your data. Obviously, you will need to send the control the data it can work with! Similarly, when working with currency, there is a specific currency box that makes life loads easier.

Good luck on your Kinetic adventures.

@alphageek1975 that doesn’t actually do anything.

Lol… I’ve been using the currency box, knew the number box was there, but of course is doesn’t work.
