Validating BigDecimal


I am using an Input field of Big Decimal type. If the user enters characters or anything other, I need to show error image.

Could you please tell, how to validate the bigdecimal?. Thanks.

How you are assigning BigDecimal to InputField? I guess your context attribute is of type string but you want to validate to accept only BigDecimal.

There is no direct InputAction so you should validate on any of the button action:

String bigValue = wdContext.currentContextElement().getBigDecValue();

boolean validValue = true;

BigDecimal bigObj = null;



bigObj = new BigDecimal(bigValue);


catch(NumberFormatException nfe)


validValue = false;

wdComponentAPI.getMessageManager().reportException("Invalid value",false);




//continue ur logic
