    I want users to enter a number (time in hours) but some just type random words into the spinner object. I have considered using a number object but there is no minimum value option with number.

     

    How do i set a minimum value for Number Object?

    How do i restrict spinner characters to numberical only?

    GeekTips,

    In the Spinner you can set the min/max and default value.
    You can also set in the HOVER TEXT that ONLY NUMBERS allowed.
    Make it a REQUIRED field.
    Put a HEADER TEXT that indicates Input should be NUMBERS ONLY 

    You can also set a Condition that if VALUE < 1 hide the SUBMIT BUTTON.

     

     Mathew's suggestion will work also, if the number range to choose is minimal, otherwise you will make a lot conditions.

    Thank you, i've decided to use the slider becuase some of the responses are obviosuly spam e.g. how many hours? and I get an answer of 10000000000000000. so the slider works for me!
