form currency type

edited September 2016 in News & Announcements
I have a form field in a template in a simple module that's defaulting to a currency type, which is find: It's configured in the template as follows:

'from_price' => array('type' => 'currency', 'currency' => '£'),

it's save to the database as JSON correctly


when the module re-renders the value it appears as:

"From price £12.00"

I've checked the documentation and it indicates the separator can be moved, I've tried 0 and 10, 0 didn't make a difference and 10 hung the page.

How should currency be handled in JSON?

We are using the develop branch version of Fuel

    What were the options you added to your form field and what was the expected output you were looking for?

    I tried:
    'type' => 'currency', 'currency' => '£'

    and, thinking that 0 would disable the separator
    'type' => 'currency', 'currency' => '£', 'separator' =>0

    Then separator 10, trying to move the separator out of the range of numbers the field would be used for
    'type' => 'currency', 'currency' => '£', 'separator' =>10

    It sounds like you are just wanting a number field that has decimals and a before_html value of "£" correct? If so, try the following:
    'type' => 'number', 'before_html' => '£', 'decimal' => TRUE
