If we enter 5% in a doublebox, it is automatically converted into 0.05 on onOK event.

Test code:

<window title="doublebox demo" border="normal">

But, I don't want this to happen and I want to do some calculations based on this % symbol.

Can we able to disable this auto-percentage calculation in doublebox? Or any other suggestion regarding the same?

How about a text box with your own regex rule: [\d.]+\%?

Thank you, jj :)

Yes, your suggestion works, but regex gets validated when the focus leaves the field.

I have set the constraint as follows:
<textbox constraint="/.[0-9|%]+/" />
Then it allows "654%43" as valid value. How can we set % as the last character and only once?

Is there any way to apply filter while typing using regex?
