Number formatting in text input

I need to show numbers in an input text field on a form to 5 points of precision eg 0.25 must be shown as 0.25000
That's easy, but submitting them again and converting them to floats doesn't work, I get conversion errors. I thought I could get around the problem by having a get method that returns a string, and a set method that takes a float, eg.



But this doesn't work. I get 'Conversion Error "newPrice": Error during model data update.' Can anyone help me?

I wonder if f:convertNumber would do what you want. If not, then you can write a custom converter, a class that implements javax.faces.convert.Convert.
