[archive] Numeric fields - Number required

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 10 March 2010]

Hello,

I want to be able to enter a charater in a numeric field.
The runtime gives the message 'Number required' but I want to be able to get an exception on that field and be able to continue my program.
Is there a way to do this?

RE: [archive] Numeric fields - Number required

No, unless you change the field. The "number required" is coming from the Windows API or from Acu controls on Unix, no exception is raised. You'll need to remove the numeric property from the field and then parse it on your own looking for numerics or alphanumerics.
