    Is there a way to lock spinner so you can only use the up and down and not enter custom amounts?

    We are running an auction and would like bids to be forced to increase by $5 increments. I would like to lock the text box so that only the up and down arrows are able to be used, and the user cannot enter their own custom amount. Is there a way to do this?

    You can do that by Adding this code below to Custom CSS code:

    #input_5 {

    pointer-events: none; 


    Be mindful that #input_5 is ID of my spinner field. To find out your spinner's ID please follow:

    And then you will find the ID in new window:

    Please try and let me know if that helps.

    Thank you!
