Format currency input field with dollar sign & commas

Issue

I have a revenue input field in a javascript/jquery form:

  1. Need a dollar sign :before
  2. add commas as the currency increases

I have a dollar sign showing via css, but issues centering it and ensuring the field entry point is next to it without overlapping. Unsure how to do the commas. Any suggestions or tips are welcome!

HTML:

  <form id="rev-calculator">
  <label for="price">Monthly Revenue</label>
  <div class="fields">
    <input type="number" name="price" id="price" min="0" max="10000000000" required data-type="number"> </input>
    <br>
  </form>

CSS:

  <style>
      .body {
        text-align: left;
      }
      
      .fields {
        margin: 0 10px 0 0;
      }
      
      .fields:before {
        content: "$";
        text-align: center;
        position: relative;
        left:30px;
      }
      
      #price {
        border-radius: 5px;
        margin: 15px;
        padding: 10px;
        color: black;
      }
    </style>

JS:

<script>
  $('#rev-calculator').on('click', 'button', function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    var price = $("#price").val();
    console.log(price);
  })
</script>

Solution

Well here’s a way, though in truth not as simple as I hoped when I started down this path. You can use Intl.NumberFormat to get the comma in there (according to locale). To accomodate decimals, I sniff for them in the beginning and append them to the result.

To allow for the comma, I made this a text field with a pattern attribute. Also, I adjusted your CSS to make it a little nicer looking with the $

$('#price').keydown(function(e) {
  setTimeout(() => {
    let parts = $(this).val().split(".");
    let v = parts[0].replace(/\D/g, ""),
      dec = parts[1]
    let calc_num = Number((dec !== undefined ? v + "." + dec : v));
    // use this for numeric calculations
    console.log('number for calculations: ', calc_num);
    let n = new Intl.NumberFormat('en-EN').format(v);
    n = dec !== undefined ? n + "." + dec : n;
    $(this).val(n);
  })
})
.body {
  text-align: left;
}

.fields {
  margin: 0 10px 0 0;
}

.fields:before {
  content: "$";
  text-align: center;
  position: relative;
  left: 35px;
}

#price {
  border-radius: 5px;
  margin: 15px;
  padding: 10px 10px 10px 20px;
  color: black;
}
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<form id="rev-calculator">
  <label for="price">Monthly Revenue</label>
  <div class="fields">
    <input type="text" pattern="[0-9.,]+" name="price" id="price" required data-type="number" />
    <br>
</form>
