Numeric fields have a few unique options for controlling data entry.

  • Default value

  • Format (integer vs. decimal)

  • Minimum / maximum (the minimum or maximum value that will be accepted)


  • Numeric fields can only accept mathematical numbers, it can not be used for capturing values like formatted phone numbers. It will be better to use a text field type.

  • Numeric fields do not support leading zeros or trailing zeros (degrees of precision). For this a text field type would be better.
