The Numpad point can be used to quickly collect numeric data with options to specify a valid range of numbers or to set a limit on the number of digits that can be entered.
The Numpad point can be configured in the Mobile Data Anywhere Designer to customise the behaviour of the point. Below is an example of the properties window for a Numpad point, opened in the Mobile Data Anywhere Designer.
These options can be used to customise the appearance and format of the Numpad point. The display size is used to specify the width of the Numpad point, when display on a mobile device. The decimal character can be set manually or can be set to automatically use the device's regional settings.
