An advanced money mask input for Yii Framework 2 based on jQuery-maskMoney plugin. The plugin offers a simple way to create masks to your currency form fields. The yii2-money extension includes these additional enhancements in order to use the maskMoney plugin effectively:

  • default styling for Bootstrap 3 and supports Yii Active Field validations
  • automatically read a float/decimal and convert it to the money format on field load
  • automatically convert back the field to a float/decimal for saving once the mask is changed (maintains an internal hidden field)
  • allows global settings of the mask money plugin options via Yii::$app->params

Note: This extension depends on the kartik-v/yii2-widgets extension which in turn depends on the yiisoft/yii2-bootstrap extension. Check the composer.json for this extension's requirements and dependencies. Note: Yii 2 framework is still in active development, and until a fully stable Yii2 release, your core yii2-bootstrap packages (and its dependencies) may be updated when you install or update this extension. You may need to lock your composer package versions for your specific app, and test for extension break if you do not wish to auto update dependencies.


You can see detailed documentation and demonstration on usage of the extension.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run:

$ php composer.phar require kartik-v/yii2-money "*"

or add:

"kartik-v/yii2-money": "*"

to the require section of your composer.json file.


Global Settings

You can globally set the plugin options for your money format across the application in the params section of your Yii configuration file. You need to set the maskMoneyOptions in your Yii application params. For example:

'params' => [
    'maskMoneyOptions' => [
        'prefix' => 'US$ ',
        'suffix' => ' c',
        'affixesStay' => true,
        'thousands' => ',',
        'decimal' => '.',
        'precision' => 2, 
        'allowZero' => false,
        'allowNegative' => false,
Formatter Settings

If you have not setup params like above, the plugin will default the thousandSeparator and decimalSeparator from Yii::$app->formatter settings in your configuration file.

'components' => [
    'formatter' => [
        'class' => 'yii\i18n\formatter',
        'thousandSeparator' => ',',
        'decimalSeparator' => '.',

You can configure the widget as shown below. Any plugin option not passed, will be defaulted from the above two sections (params and formatter). Note that properties directly set in pluginOptions at the widget level as shown below, will override other global settings.

use kartik\money\MaskMoney;
echo MaskMoney::widget([
    'name' => 'currency',
    'value' => 122423.18,
    'pluginOptions' => [
        'prefix' => '$ ',
