I added a Textbox and a Numeric textbox to a canvas.

When I looked at the vartype of the value, they both show “C”.
I expected the Numeric textbox to be “N”.


The Numeric textbox accepts digits and is formatted to right-align, but still contains text and has a character ‘value’. A spinner can be used to hold numeric values.


If I click and drag a numeric table field into a section, a numerictextbox will be auto created. However, the alignment is left. Changing the text alignment attributes does not seems to have an effect, so is there anyway to change to right align?

In the web client the digits are left aligned, but in the desktop client, setting ‘Text alignment’ to right (or center) should control the data text alignment.

effect only applies to desktop.




One thought on “Numeric

  1. You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely large for me. I’m looking ahead to your next post, I will try to get the cling of it!
