How hard would it be to extend DoubleEditBox to allow clients to parse the text string.   I would like to allow users to type in alternate units.   The format string has "in".   It would be nice is we could type in "20 cm" and convert to inches. 

Is there any way to inject code into the text to double translator?

Hi John,

Each edit box has a protected TryConvertFromString method that does our default conversion.  You could override that with custom logic if you'd like.
