    If you use the "Number" field you can actually set a max value. Please see the screenshot below:

    In case there's any confusion, our founder (Aytekin) inadvertently indicated the wrong toolbar button in his screenshot. It's actually the Max Value one to which he was referring:

    (The Max Size button sets the number of characters [digits, in this instance] and not the upper value of numbers which may be entered.)

    Incidentally, if a max value restriction were to be set and a user entered a value greater than that allowed, they would see the following error message by default:

    (Notice how no such message is triggered when a number greater than 1100 is entered in the text box.)

    If there's anything else JotForm related with which we may assist you, please let us know.
