How to change number format in UI5 Generic Tile?

I am using some generic tiles ( ) to display some KPI-like numbers (some floats, some int, positive and negative).

Independent of what kind of number I pass in the number is always displayed with 4 digits (including the '.' or '-'). This leads to large numbers > 10000 being truncated and numbers with more then 3 decimals to be rounded.

E.g. 12345 shows as 1234, 0.12345 shows as 0.12 and -1234 shows as -123

Is there a way so I can tweak the generic tile to show more then the 4 digits?

Hi Jan Schober ,

Actually this is due to the property truncateValueTo of the sap.m.NumericContent which is defaulted to 4 .. You need to increase this to 5 to show 5 character number.

So its not an issue of generic tile its an issue of the control sap.m.NumericContent

<NumericContent value="{/XYZ/number}" truncateValueTo="6"/>


Did the trick - thanks a lot!
