Control Num

The Control Number plug-in (also known as Control Num) is used to be able to decide how a number input is to be formatted. It can be a value given by the control client user or by any external source. It should be used instead of Control Text when numbers are to be the input value. To make it work, add the plug-in to the container that holds the text object.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Built Ins -> Container plug-ins -> Control
