cannot enter negative numbers !?

Postby AndreasDK » Wed Jan 06, 2010 1:51 am

When I try to enter negative floating point number in my Danish HTC S710, I cannot do that. Negative numbers, which are entered via the HandBase Desktop and than syncronized to the mobile-phone are changed to "0". How can I come arround that problem?

Best regards

Hi Andreas,

I'm not sure what can be causing the issue, but guessing it's related to the locale setting. Can you provide me an example of what a number would look like that is negative and a floating point?
In the interim as a workaround, I recommend using the text field type. Calculations should still work and there is no real change other than on touch screen devices a different popup keyboard shows.

Dear Dave,

the workaround with the text-field instead of floating point field works. However, I guess the problem is the same as with the floating point issue in another topic.
Therefore I will wait for the next maintenance release.

Thanks for your help.
