I’m having a problem trying to get the proper numeric keypad on iOS using input type=“number”
On Android, using type=“number” brings up a numeric keypad with nice big numbers and a decimal point, which is all great.
On iOS, using type=“number” brings up a keyboard that looks like the standard ABC keyboard but with a bunch of special characters, which is unwieldly to use for putting in number values.
Changing the input type to “tel” turns the keyboard on iOS into a proper numeric keypad with the big ol number keys, but it doesn’t come with a decimal point character. (a period or comma)
Being able to input decimal numbers is crucial in this scenario, so I really need to find a way to force the numeric keypad to include a period or a comma symbol.
If anyone has any idea how to accomplish this, I’d really like to know!
