    Validation problem on a number field set to validation=none

    Asked by guisasso on June 18, 2013 at 08:17 AM

    On a number field, I have set validation to none because I need users to be able to input things such as " and ' for inches and feet respectvely.

    Internet Explorer: Does not work. It displays the arrows to choose quantity and if input is 100' for example, gives me a message: This field can only contain numeric values

    Safari: Works. Displays arrows, but 100' is accepted as input.

    Opera: Works. Displays arrows, but 100' is accepted as input.

    Google Chrome: Works. Displays arrows, but 100' is accepted as input.

    Firefox: Does not work. It displays the arrows to choose quantity and if input is 100' for example, gives me a message: This field can only contain numeric values

    @guisasso

    That's correct. I checked it and see that the number field with no validation does accepts " ' " in chrome but doesn't work in IE and FF.

    I am forwarding your issue to Level 2 support. As soon as there are updates on this you will get the notification via this thread.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    I am sorry to inform you that we have removed validation option from number fields. Please use a textbox field for this question instead. This is not possible with number fields since one of the browsers (chrome) does support only numeric input.

    I apologize for this inconvenience. Please feel free to give your feedback on this subject.

    Thank you for your understanding.
