I am having a problem with numeric fields in my current form project. Here are the requirements for the fields:
The fields must appear blank (completely empty) to indicate that nothing has been entered.
If something is entered, the fields must be validated to ensure that the value entered is a number up to two decimal places.
The fields must be able to capture if the value entered is zero.
If I use a numeric field and set it to 2 decimal places, then the field always displays a value, even if nothing has been entered. If I use a text field set to numeric, I can’t enter the decimal. If I use a text field without formatting, I can’t validate the entry.
