Masking for numeric values only

  1. I want the user to just enter numeric values ANY length, ie,
    2000 not $2000 or not 2,000
    how do I do that in the "input mask" section of the field?

    I looked at the link in http://gravitywiz.com/2012/05/24/format-field-as-currency/
    in a prior post but that was over my head.

    I'm not a programmer.

  2. The input mask is designed to force input of a fixed length. Therefore, I don't believe you can use the input mask to force numbers 0 through 9 only. The number field will allow a decimal separator, so I don't believe you can use that.

    I think you will have to perform validation on the user's input, to ensure it is numeric only. Unfortunately, someone with a little programming skill will need to help you implement this. It's not something which can be managed from the form builder. Here is the filter you want to use: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_validation

  3. Okay might have to find a programmer or if you could tell me how to make the field description
    closer to the field that would probably work. There appears to be a blank line.
    Here is what the field and description look like:
    What is the maximum monthly payment you can afford? *

    Digits only please. No $ or commas.

    Or see http://www.leaseoptiondango.com/all-available-homes2/

    Now Rob gave me this code that I inserted and tweaked the form a bit. He gave me:
    #content .page #gform_wrapper_3 ul ii {
    margin-botton: lOpx;

    }

    #gform_wrapper_3 .gfield_label {
    font-weight: normal;

    }

    So could I modify that code to make the blank line go away?

  4. How about this:

    [css]
    body .gform_wrapper .gfield_description {
        padding-top: 0px!important;
    }

    That will put all the field descriptions right up against the form field.

  5. I added that to the style sheet at the bottom and it didn't do anything to the description. I put:< br/>
    body .gform_wrapper_3 .gfield_description {
    padding-top: 0px!important;
    }
    where the "_3" is the form number and I tried it without the "_3" no difference.

  6. Could it be that I got this:
    #content .page #gform_wrapper_3 ul ii {
    margin-botton: lOpx;

    so the 10px is creating that space?

  7. Is there a way to put it just below the label instead of after the field?

  8. Please copy and paste the text here that you want moved. I am unclear on what you want moved and where you want it moved. Thank you.

  9. http://www.leaseoptiondango.com/all-available-homes2/ on this page you'll see
    The field label:
    What is the maximum monthly payment you can afford? *
    Below that you'll see the description:
    Digits only please. No $ or commas.

    Can I put the description directly under the field label before the input box?

  10. On the form settings tab, you have a drop down for both label placement and description placement. Choose "top aligned" for label placement and "above inputs" for the description and you will have what you want, I believe.
