Comma as decimal separator


I'm facing problems using SfNumericTextBox on iOS devices w/ pt-BR keyboards. Your control allows me only to use "," at the begining of the number but not after that. Mind that pt-BR numeric keyboard doesn't have period key.

Hi Diego,

Thank for contacting Syncfusion support.

Query 1: SfNumericTextBox allows to enter "," at the beginning of the number only.

For "pt-BR" culture "," separator is considered as a decimal point (We can add only one decimal point for a number). We can add that decimal point anywhere in the number, SfNumericTextBox will not block you to enter. We have recorded a video footage for your convenience please download the same from the below link.

Query 2: For "pt-BR" culture keyboard does not have period key.

We have prepared a sample using SfNumericTextBox and Xamarin.Forms Entry to replicate the mentioned behavior. While editing both the fields the keyboard does not contain period key. Please download the same from the following link.

We have changed our device region to "Portugal".

I'm using XF 2.3.3, Xamarin.VisualStudio_4.2.1.64, iPhone SE iOS 10.1 (14B72) and SyncFusion

Your sample doesn't work with Portuguese or Brazillian-Portuguese.

Best regards,
