How to Allow Only Two Decimal Number In Flutter?

Users can give a try to below code snippet.

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter/services.dart';

import 'dart:math' as math;

void main() {
  runApp(new MaterialApp(home: new MyApp()));
}

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text("Flutter"),
      ),
      body: Form(
        child: ListView(
          children: <Widget>[
            TextFormField(
              inputFormatters: [DecimalTextInputFormatter(decimalRange: 2)],
              keyboardType: TextInputType.numberWithOptions(decimal: true),
            )
          ],
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

class DecimalTextInputFormatter extends TextInputFormatter {
  DecimalTextInputFormatter({this.decimalRange})
      : assert(decimalRange == null || decimalRange > 0);

  final int decimalRange;

  @override
  TextEditingValue formatEditUpdate(
    TextEditingValue oldValue, // unused.
    TextEditingValue newValue,
  ) {
    TextSelection newSelection = newValue.selection;
    String truncated = newValue.text;

    if (decimalRange != null) {
      String value = newValue.text;

      if (value.contains(".") &&
          value.substring(value.indexOf(".") + 1).length > decimalRange) {
        truncated = oldValue.text;
        newSelection = oldValue.selection;
      } else if (value == ".") {
        truncated = "0.";

        newSelection = newValue.selection.copyWith(
          baseOffset: math.min(truncated.length, truncated.length + 1),
          extentOffset: math.min(truncated.length, truncated.length + 1),
        );
      }

      return TextEditingValue(
        text: truncated,
        selection: newSelection,
        composing: TextRange.empty,
      );
    }
    return newValue;
  }
}

The solution will work like this

TextFormField(
    inputFormatters: [
        WhitelistingTextInputFormatter(RegExp(r'^\d+\.?\d{0,2}')),
    ],
)

A Shorter Version of DecimalTextInputFormatter using RegExp:

class DecimalTextInputFormatter extends TextInputFormatter {

  DecimalTextInputFormatter({int decimalRange, bool activatedNegativeValues})
  : assert(decimalRange == null || decimalRange >= 0,
    'DecimalTextInputFormatter declaretion error') {
    String dp = (decimalRange != null && decimalRange > 0) ? "([.][0-9]{0,$decimalRange}){0,1}" : "";
    String num = "[0-9]*$dp";

    if(activatedNegativeValues) {
      _exp = new RegExp("^((((-){0,1})|((-){0,1}[0-9]$num))){0,1}\$");
    }
    else {
      _exp = new RegExp("^($num){0,1}\$");
    }
  }

  RegExp _exp;

  @override
  TextEditingValue formatEditUpdate(
    TextEditingValue oldValue,
    TextEditingValue newValue,
  ) {
    if(_exp.hasMatch(newValue.text)){
      return newValue;
    }
    return oldValue;
  }
}
TextFormField(
    inputFormatters: [
        WhitelistingTextInputFormatter(RegExp(r'^(\d+)?\.?\d{0,2}')),
    ],
)
import 'package:flutter/services.dart';
import 'dart:math' as math;

class DecimalTextInputFormatter extends TextInputFormatter {
  DecimalTextInputFormatter({this.decimalRange, this.activatedNegativeValues})
      : assert(decimalRange == null || decimalRange >= 0,
            'DecimalTextInputFormatter declaretion error');

  final int decimalRange;
  final bool activatedNegativeValues;

  @override
  TextEditingValue formatEditUpdate(
    TextEditingValue oldValue, // unused.
    TextEditingValue newValue,
  ) {
    TextSelection newSelection = newValue.selection;
    String truncated = newValue.text;


if (newValue.text.contains(' ')) {
  return oldValue;
}

if (newValue.text.isEmpty) {
  return newValue;
} else if (double.tryParse(newValue.text) == null &&
    !(newValue.text.length == 1 &&
        (activatedNegativeValues == true ||
            activatedNegativeValues == null) &&
        newValue.text == '-')) {
  return oldValue;
}

if (activatedNegativeValues == false &&
    double.tryParse(newValue.text) < 0) {
  return oldValue;
}

if (decimalRange != null) {
  String value = newValue.text;

  if (decimalRange == 0 && value.contains(".")) {
    truncated = oldValue.text;
    newSelection = oldValue.selection;
  }

  if (value.contains(".") &&
      value.substring(value.indexOf(".") + 1).length > decimalRange) {
    truncated = oldValue.text;
    newSelection = oldValue.selection;
  } else if (value == ".") {
    truncated = "0.";

    newSelection = newValue.selection.copyWith(
      baseOffset: math.min(truncated.length, truncated.length + 1),
      extentOffset: math.min(truncated.length, truncated.length + 1),
    );
  }

  return TextEditingValue(
    text: truncated,
    selection: newSelection,
    composing: TextRange.empty,
  );
}
return newValue;
}
}
