This example demonstrates about How to limit Decimal Places in Android EditText.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">
   <EditText
      android:hint="Enter decimal numbers"
      android:id="@+id/etText"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_marginTop="16dp"
      android:inputType="numberDecimal" />
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package app.com.sample;
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.text.InputFilter;
import android.text.Spanned;
import android.widget.EditText;
import java.util.regex.Matcher;
import java.util.regex.Pattern;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      EditText etText = findViewById(R.id.etText);
      etText.setFilters(new InputFilter[]{new DecimalDigitsInputFilter(5, 2)});
   }
}
class DecimalDigitsInputFilter implements InputFilter {
   private Pattern mPattern;
   DecimalDigitsInputFilter(int digitsBeforeZero, int digitsAfterZero) {
      mPattern = Pattern.compile("[0-9]{0," + (digitsBeforeZero - 1) + "}+((\\.[0-9]{0," + (digitsAfterZero - 1) + "})?)||(\\.)?");
   }
   @Override
   public CharSequence filter(CharSequence source, int start, int end, Spanned dest, int dstart, int dend) {
      Matcher matcher = mPattern.matcher(dest);
      if (!matcher.matches())
      return "";
      return null;
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="app.com.sample">
   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer.
