Perspective Text Field Numeric Keypad

Does anybody know how to enable a numeric keypad on perspective?
We are using a touch screen as HMI, perspective does not have any built-in numeric keypads, maybe because perspective is web-browser based.
Has anybody found a way to enable a numeric keypad on perspective?

IiRC, there's a current bug causing this when the spinner is disabled. Try enabling the spinner on your fields.

I enable spinner, but that is an arrow up and down.
There is no numeric keypad.
It would be so hard for operator to operate on a touch screen.

If you're on a Windows device, have you had any luck with the On-Screen Keyboard? I know it seems to be a little buggy in itself, but might work for you.

I will try that.
If perspective has a popup for it would be nice.
Perspective is making it harder for people to build HMI.

I'll agree with you that Perspective doesn't seem to be quite there for HMI yet.
I still prefer Vision for actual machine interfaces, and Perspective for dashboards and information displays for engineering/management.

I totally agree with you.
Just my client asked for Perspective, and giving me some templates of faceplates that do not work.

I built this Exchange resource ages ago, and I've just submitted an updated version for use in newer Ignitions version. The 1.0.0 version did not allow for anything other than integer values and required use of an Embedded View. The newer (1.1.0 - pending review) version supports double/float values and can be used in Popups or Docked Views. I'll update the instructions once the new version has been approved.

I also created/modified a resource for keyboard/keypad if you want to give it a shot.
