autonumeric-rails

Wrap up the excellent autoNumeric.js javascript library

autoNumeric is a jQuery plugin that automatically formats currency (money) and numbers as you type on form inputs. It supports most International numeric formats and currency signs including those used in Europe, North and South America, Asia and India (lakhs**).

autoNumeric.js github repository and documentation https://github.com/BobKnothe/autoNumeric

autoNumeric.js home page and settings generator http://www.decorplanit.com/plugin

The autonumeric-rails simply wrap up autoNumeric.js and in addition provides ujs flavor to autoNumeric.js

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'autonumeric-rails'

And then execute:

bundle

Then add in your javascript.js manifest:

//= require jquery
//= require autonumeric

Usage

Simply add data-autonumeric attribute to your HTML tag to initialize autoNumeric
with its default values:

<%= form_for @model do |f| %>
  <%= f.text_field :field, data: {autonumeric: true} %>
<% end %>

You can also pass autoNumeric configuration parameters directly with a Hash in your HTML tag:

<%= form_for @model do |f| %>
  <%= f.text_field :field, data: {autonumeric: {aSign: 'USD ', mDec: 0}} %>
<% end %>

See autoNumeric pages (links above) for all details on configuration and options

AJAX

autonumeric-rails looks for ajaxComplete events which are trigger by jQuery every time an Ajax request finishes. As a result, rails-ujs elements (i.e. data-remote elements) now automatically initialize autonumeric fields after the AJAX request is complete.

Javascript DOM manipulation

When a Javascript function generate and add to the DOM new fields with autonumeric attributes, you must manually refresh in order to initialize those new fields.

To do so you must trigger the refresh_autonumeric event on document after you modified the DOM:

$(document).trigger('refresh_autonumeric');

Disable autonumeric-rails and autoNumeric

You can disable autonumeric-rails and autoNumeric from an object and turn it back into a simple input element by calling AutonumericRails.delete_autonumeric_object and passing the targeted jQuery object to it:

var element = $("#field");
AutonumericRails.delete_autonumeric_object(element);

Note: This will not un-sanitize the field's value, and you must do it manually.

Internal

Autonumeric-rails creates in the DOM an hidden input with the same name as the text field. On each modification of the text field value (on keyup and blue events), the hidden input is updated with the sanitized value. When validating the form, the hidden field value is sent to the server as it is located after the text field in the DOM.

Changes

For a full list of change, see the CHANGELOG.md file

1.9.33.1

Add class method delete_autonumeric_object to disable autonumeric-rails and autoNumeric attributes from an object

1.9.22

Bind on ajaxComplete event, so each jQuery ajax event automatically refresh autonumeric fields. Manually triggering refresh_autonumeric is not necessary for rails-ujs (i.e data-remote) anymore

1.9.18.1

Implement refresh_autonumeric event on document for manual update after the DOM has been modified

1.9.18.0

First attempt to implement automatic refresh of autonumeric fields using DOMNodeInserted. This was not cross-browser compatible and was quickly reverted
