Show only numeric keypad for Textinput when is it TextFormat.Number

It make sense when the Textinput Format is TextFormat.Number, the keyboard on Android or iOS should be numbers only, not the whole QWERTY.

Status: Completed

Text inputs now have a property called VirtualKeyboardMode. This is a hint to touch screen devices about what sort of virtual keyboard to use.

  • Text. For entering text in the user's language.
  • Numeric. For entering numbers, including decimals and negative numbers.
  • Auto. Use the same value as the Mode property of the text input.

Support varies depending on devices. The keyboard layout and what keys are are available may be different. For example, some Samsung devices do not have negative symbols in numeric keyboard. Users can always install a different Android keyboard that is suitable for their needs.


Minimum iOS version: 12.2

Recommended Android version: 9.0

Not supported on Windows.

Set the TEXT INPUT Mode to Password


Now the full keyboard appears and not the numeric keyboard as expected.

Hello everyone, please post questions and bug reports in the discussion forum in future. This is the Ideas section. Since this Idea has been completed, we will not be responding to any more questions here.


As a reminder, a lot of this feature depends on the particular device used. From above: "Support varies depending on device. The keyboard layout and available keys may be different.". If some devices do not have the required functionality you want, you can always set VirtualKeyboardMode to Text to get the full keyboard.
