The Format Builder will allow you to create custom formats for nuDate and nuNumber.

To create a Format we need to do 2 things.

  1. Choose the Data Type.
  2. Build the Format.


Building a nuDate

To build a date format, click on a combination of the following options.

Entering a Date with the keyboard requires the user to enter the date in the exact format.

eg. mask - result (2007-13-01 15:20:01)

  • yy - 17
  • yyyy - 2017
  • pp - am or pm
  • dd - 21
  • ddd - Tue
  • dddd - Tuesday
  • mm - 03
  • mmm - Mar
  • mmmm - March
  • hh - 15
  • nn - 20
  • ss - 01

.. and some punctuation.

Building a nuNumber

To build a number format, click on 1 of 4 punctuation types.

Any number entered will be reformatted by the field's onchange event.


  1. 1000.
  2. 1000,
  3. 1,000.
  4. 1.000,


  • To the left of these choices is a nuScroll Object that will allow you to add a currency sign.
  • To the right of these choices is a nuScroll Object that will allow you select the number of decimal places.


This prefix and suffix of the Format will be added when a punctuation type is selected.
