Design a form based on an XML schema

Choosing formatting for a number control

Setting number formatting.
Callout 1 To format numbers in the Unit Price text box, you would first right-click that control.
Callout 2 Then, you'd click Text Box Properties on the shortcut menu.
Callout 3 The Text Box Properties dialog box contains a Format button that opens the Decimal Format dialog box, where you pick the format.

For certain controls in the form that will contain numbers, you may need to set specific properties for number formatting. For example, the number in a Discount field should show as a percentage, whereas the number in a Unit Price field should show as a dollar value, or Currency.

You'll apply number formatting in the practice session.
