Thousands Separator in Field

I have text fields and number fields with dollar amounts which can range from $1 up to $300,000.

Formatting does not achieve the desired result I'm after for obvious reasons.

How do I put a thousands separator in these fields?

If this requires coding, can someone tell me where the code goes, ie. if I use a plugin or it goes in customize HTML etc. I'm ok with code, but it's not always clear where to put it.

"Formatting does not achieve the desired result I'm after for obvious reasons."

The reasons may be obvious to you, but not to others trying to help you. What are you trying to do? Whatever it is, formatting on some level is required.

Because if I format for a thousands separator like this xx,xxx, it would work well for people entering five digit numbers like 30,000, but if they wanted to enter 359,625, it would show as 35,9625.

 

To be clear, I want the thousands separator to show in fields on the form and in views - I'm not concerned about the email autoresponder formatting as much as I think there is a thread covering that already.
