I came across a problem where negative numbers are not shown on the forms. They display correct under queries and grids but not on any form. When you open the form you can see the number for a split second but as soon as the form has it styles applied it disappears.(Just blank) If you change the number to a positive value then it displays correct. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Please create a simple Test BSV with instruction to run it and send to Support.

In a possibly related issue, ranges won't take negative numbers.

1. Use/create a number attribute.
2. Try to set the "Min. Value" to a negative number. At first, the control will replace the "-" with a "0", but if you type "-" a second time, it will show up and you can replace the 0 with the desired value (the replaced "-" could be a clue that this is a known issue).
3. Enter your "Max. Value", save and close the BO.
4. Open the BO again and notice the range is gone.

Is this already solved?

I'm facing the same problem.

A negative value is visible in the grid, but not in the (regular) form.

Type : Number
Format : $###,##0.00
Min / max value : empty

When entering min/max value, it disappears after reopening the BO.

Locale : Dutch

How to show a negative value in a form using a currency symbol ?

Do not use the dollar sign as part of the format. Add it to the label instead or display it after the control. In queries use "Display format" to display it. The dollar sign in format could be the cause of the problem
