To add a field that only accepts numeral values, choose Numeric Field from the Field type dropdown.
After saving the field, a numeric field is created that only allows you to enter numbers. Note: you can input decimal numbers using a period (.) a the decimal separator.
The following field options are supported for numeric fields:
- Required field – makes data entry required prior to storing a sample
- Validate input – set criteria for input when entering data in a field
- Note field – field information for end user displayed in a tooltip balloon
- Default value – field is filled with the default value if none is provided on sample creation
Use Validate input to validate if the entered value falls within the desired range.
