How to add a currency sign inside a textbox field?

Tumblr Digg Google Plus

In this tutorial you will learn on how to place a currency sign inside a textbox field. We are going to CSS style only. No javascript is required at all. To achieve this, we need to wrap a textbox inside a div tag. We then need to set the position of the div to relative position. Then, we can add a span HTML tag with a currency sign inside the div tag and set the position of the label to an absolute position against the div tag.

Let's get started with the html code first.

<div class="currency-wrap">
	<span class="currency-code">$</span>
	<input type="number" class="text-currency"/>

The next step is to add the CSS style. One thing to remember is we need to add a padding style into the textbox. The reason because we are going to position the currency code in absolute position against the div currency-wrap CSS class and therefore it requires a gap or padding. So in this example, I am going to add 10px on the top and bottom padding of the textbox and 20px padding on the left and right of the textbox.

Here is our css style code.

		padding:10px 20px;
		border:solid 1px #ccc;
