View Full Version : Renderer in a Form?

8 Apr 2008, 4:55 AM
I'd like to be able to use custom renderers on form fields, as I can in EditorGrids.
A commonly used one would be for money.

I did a quick search and was surprised not to find other users requesting the same feature.

Has anyone done this, or have any suggestions?

do you mean a string formatter?

er, maybe?

I want my users to be able to type a number in an input and when that field loses focus for it to be formatted by a function.
Exactly like (custom) renderers in EditorGrids.

Have you looked at the source code for the fields?

I have now, but didn't see any mention of string formatting, or renderers.
If you're trying to tell me that I will have to implement this functionality then just say so.

I'm not asking for a complete copy-paste solution here, just a nudge in the right direction.

for the output, look at setValue for input formatting, use vtypes.

thank you.
that was hard work though, getting a simple answer, you could have just said "no, you will have to implement something yourself, using setValue()".

You would have gotten your answer by looking at the API or even inspecting a field with firebug.

please show me how firebug would have helped.
also, as everyone knows, just because something isn't in the docs doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I agree. this is why i included firebug in this. console.log(yourobj).

10 Apr 2008, 5:04 AM
that's why i also suggested reading the source. I wasn't being sarcastic, just merely suggesting. However, take it how you wish.

10 Apr 2008, 5:04 AM
ah okay, I thought you meant "inspect with firebug" literally.

I consider drilling down into an object 'inspecting' :)
