Hi Bob,

I was going to save this for a stack of template
fields, but here it goes:

--- Field script for a numeric field

local sBeforePaste

on keyDown pWhichKey
  put the selectedChunk into tChunk
  put word 2 of tChunk into tStart
  put word 4 of tChunk into tStop
  if tStart > tStop -- no actual selection 
    put (char 1 to tStop of me) & pWhickKey \
    into tCheck
    if length(me) > theStart then
      put (char tStart to -1 of me) after tCheck
    end if
  else
    put (char 1 to tStart - 1 of me) & pWhickKey \
    into tCheck
    if length(me) > theStop then
      put (char tStop + 1 to -1 of me) after tCheck
    end if
  end if
  if tCheck is a number then pass keyDown
  else beep
end keyDown

-- Reformat upon leaving the field

on closeField
  send "formatField" to me in 5 milliseconds
end closeField

on formatField
  put (me) into tNumber
  put format("%16.3f, tNumber) into tFormatted
  repeat while char 1 of tFormatted = " "
    delete char 1 of tFormatted
  end repeat
  put tFormatted into me
end formatField

-- Handle pasting of text in this field
-- NOTE : doesn't work when Rev UI is ON

on pasteKey
  put (me) into sBeforePaste
  send "checkAfterPaste" to me in 5 milliseconds
  pass pasteKey
end pasteKey

on checkAfterPaste
  put (me) into tAfterPaste
  if tAfterPaste is not a number then
    beep
    put sBeforePaste into me
  end if
end checkAfterPaste

---

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
