Enables or disables the requirement of typing the decimal point.
SET DECIMALPOINT ON|OFF
The DECIMALPOINT option is set ON by default.
DECIMALPOINT only has an effect on entry fields during FORM INPUT:
When DECIMALPOINT is ON:
typed digits fill the input mask from the right-most digit leftwards
there is no need to type the decimal point since its presence is assumed
mimics the functionality of TUI for numeric values with decimal point
When DECIMALPOINT is OFF:
typed digits fill the input mask from the first digit to the left of the decimal point leftwards
typed digits are assumed to belong to the integer part of the numeric value
decimals are assumed to be 0.
if there are decimals in the input numeric value, the decimal point must be typed
set decimalpoint on
set decimalpoint off
Examples: Numeric value of an Entry Field with input mask =”9999.99” after a FORM INPUT.
