Hi tehdeadhand, you can set the Format property on the text input control to TextFormat.Number to limit the text input to only accept numbers (Select the Text Input, and in the sidebar go to Advanced > Design > Format). However, this does not pop up the number softkeyboard on mobile devices. I have reported the issue to the dev team.

Thank you, i would htink that having the ability to use the different soft keyboards would be very useful. HTML, JS can do it so i would imagine its possible.

kinda makes number only apps useless in power apps without it.


Any update on this issue?
