Thousand and decimal separator in number fields while typing

Is there a way to show thousand and decimal separator in number fields while typing?


We made a POS system and when the users enter the payment amount with several people waiting in line it becomes hard to easily read the difference between 1000 vs 10000 or even worse 1000,10 vs 10000,10 it will be nice if while you type the number it formats as it does when you save the data 1.000 10.000 or 1.000,10 and 10.000,10 we use . as thousand separator and , for decimals. Again we can format the number but that only works when the field data is saved.


This seems to be a limitation in FileMakers side, unless I am missing something...


As a last resource JavaScript may solve this, but I will try to avoid that for now.


Thanks for help in advanced!
