How to default to a numeric keyboard in iPhone app
Posted December 31, 2010on:
<input type=’number’ …> can do it.
It will be a full blown keyboard with a few /, etc. Not the telephone keypad if you use ‘tel’ as type.
You can also do <input type=’text’ pattern='[0-9]*’ … but it is the same as type=’tel’
The Safari guide for iPhone development did not record this at all.
