Is there any way to have the Numeric Entry Text box clear the contents of the entry box when the operator places the cursor in the box?

Currently, where ever the cursor is placed within the entry box that is where the cursor lands, so before the decimal ... after the decimal ... and with some operators at the helm they are not recognizing where the cursor lands and they just start typing the new value.

I would like when the numeric entry box has gained the cursor, that the contents of the entry box are either cleared or fully highlighted (similar to double clicking the entry box), then the operator would be able to immediately start typing the revised set point.

Select entry box-> type set point -> enter (to commit)

I believe you could use a multi-write tag and a button to push the data from the box to the desired address. The nice part of the multi-write is that you can use it to erase the value from the box after it has been passed.

I will pass it along to development, but I think this is default Windows behaviour. Normally, a double-click should highlight the contents of the box so the user would type and over-write everything. A single click puts it into edit mode. The behaviour would have to be an option on the widget itself. I think we would have just as many people wanting to be able to click and make changes...not just empty the box.

Yes, I believe that behavior would be ideal, where the operator would be able to single click and the entire contents of the box would be highlighted to allow a seamless numeric entry. We have some touch screen interfaces and while training the double click on a pc with a mouse is fairly easy, a double tap on the touch screen interface with hot dog fingers is not. smile
