Number Field Decimal Places

  1. I have several number fields on a form. I need the field to accept more than 3 decimal places. I can only get up to 3 to work. Is this a bug, or is there a way to do this?

    Thanks,

  2. Further to this, it seems like we can not enter a value with 1 decimal place either. It requires 2?

  3. Do you have to use a number field specifically in this instance? Can you just sub them out with single-line text fields instead?

  4. Can I convert the fields to text easily? It would be nice if the number fields actually worked.

  5. For the number field, when you say more than 3 decimal places - Do you mean:

    1.2345 or 123.45 or 1.2.3.4.5?

    Also, what version of GF are you running?

  6. I mean 1.2345. Right now I can enter 7.50, but not 7.5. I can enter 7.552, but not 7.5525. Our field needs to be able to enter values with 1/16 inch precision, so I have customers trying to enter 7.0625, and it does not work. We are running GF 1.6.3.3.2.

  7. Update to GF 1.6.4.2 - I just placed 7.0625 into a test number field and it submitted correctly.

  8. I just tested 1.6.4.2 and I have the same issue. It only allows entering numbers with 2 or 3 decimal places. Not 1 or 4. The exact error is "Please enter a valid number". This happens on a multi-page form as soon as I click next.

  9. Can you export your form and send the XML file to me to rob@rocketgenius.com and reference this post?

  10. I got this working. It looks like the number format needs to be selected for this to work properly. After selecting the number format, it worked.
