    in google chrome the number field has issues

    Asked by maintenance696 on April 07, 2011 at 09:00 AM

    This form: http://form.jotform.com/form/10900957611 does not allow a number with a decimal point for example 415.36 to be used. I couldn't find a way to correct it in the form settings and I prefer to leave it as a number field. It works fine on mozilla and ie just not on chrome. Can you help?

    I believe that the field in question was inserted using the Number element under the Quick Tools. I am not sure but I think that field element only accepts whole numbers.

    Solution is to remove that field element and replace it with a Textbox field under the Form Tools option.

    Set the validation to Numeric to accept only numerical values.

    Hope that helps. Let  us know if you have other questions.

    Any updates to this issue?  The number field in Chrome still will not accept decimals while the same field in Firefox does.  Replacing with a text field in a form already being used would result in loss of or inconsistent data.  Or is there a way to replace the number field with a text field without deleting the existing item and creating a new one?
