Component’s XML-name: currencyField.

Basics

Basically, CurrencyField repeats the functionality of TextField. You can manually set a datatype for the field, except that only the following numeric datatypes are supported:

  • decimal

  • int

  • long

  • double

  • float

CurrencyField can be bound to a data container using the dataContainer and property attributes:

@JmixEntity
@Table(name = "UIEX1_PRODUCT")
@Entity(name = "UIEX1_Product")
public class Product {
    @JmixGeneratedValue
    @Column(name = "ID", nullable = false)
    @Id
    private UUID id;

    @Column(name = "PRICE", nullable = false)
    @CurrencyValue(currency = "USD")
    protected BigDecimal price;
    // ...
}
<data>
    <instance id="productDc"
              class="ui.ex1.entity.Product"
              fetchPlan="_base"/>
</data>
<layout>
    <currencyField id="priceField"
                   currencyLabelPosition="LEFT"
                   dataContainer="productDc"
                   property="price"/>
</layout>
