    How to ensure that number keypad is displayed for numeric fields in mobile device?

    Asked by Jforms on February 03, 2015 at 01:27 PM

    Will there be an update to where all tex box inputs can be altered to be "number" instead of dealing with form validation or will I need to use something other than a text box? I'm creating a form where all inputs are numeric and it would be easier if the proper keyboard comes up on mobile/tablets.

     

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    I've checked the "Number" field and added it on a sample test form. I then viewed it on iOS 8, 7 and 6. When focusing the input there, the keypad that pops up is the number pad.

     

    iOS 8.3:

     

    If you want the number keypad to show, you might need to convert all the form fields to a number field type instead.

    Thank you.

    the one you are attaching is not a number keyboard, the attached one below is a number keyboard:

    You can get the number keyboard with a type='tel' field on iOS. Use a Phone field from Quick Tools to set it up. The telephone field has two input boxes by default, but you can use an Input Mask mode as a work around.

    Thank you.
