    Open numeric keypad in mobile devices when Zip Code is active in Address field

    Asked by djmgmt on March 10, 2015 at 09:24 PM

    Is it possible to get your mobile device to pull up just numbers in a specific form? For example: if i pull up the form on my mobile device and want to add a zip code in a text area, is it possible to pull up numbers on my keyboard instead of letters? if so how? I hope I explained that right lol

    I'm sorry, but that is not possible in the address field if that's what you mean. I think one of the reason is that there are countries that are using an Alphanumeric Zip Codes. An example of this is Canada.

    A workaround would be to use an individual textbox field for the address sectuion and set the validation to numeric:

    I set the "phone number" text field to numeric but it is not prompting just the numbers on the mobile keyboard

    It seems you are right. Please use the number field instead from Quick Tools section:

    I just tried it and it opens the numeric keyboard.

    Thank you!

    You'll need to use the full source code of your form to accomplish this.

    Once you've downloaded it, change the type option of the input fields in which you want to show the numeric pad to "number" it has "text" by default.

    This will make the numeric pad appear for those fields.

    You can see a demo here: https://shots.jotform.com/raul/530822/ for the zip code field.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
