    Form wont accept .5 as a number

    Asked by welty on September 16, 2015 at 08:21 AM


    I created a form that has a "number" field. When users try to put .5 or anything less than 1 it gives me an error. Please help.

    hi welty. 

    i tried a regular text box field with validation set to numeric & used a number field.

    i entered ".5" on both fields - both instances were accepted and no error messages were given. 

    maybe something in the field properties needs to be tweaked?

    could you share your form link so the community / support team could help troubleshoot?

    Looks like you are currently using the source codes with a custom validation in the field. If the form is embedded, please let us know the page URL here so we can check further.

    This is your last form ID http://www.jotform.us/form/50115147283145 and it's accepting .5 or 0.5 without any issues.
