Hope I've not gatecrashed here but I am trying to develop an application that requires users to input numbers into a web-based form. Is there anyway to get the Blackerry to recognise the fields as for numbers only so I don't have to use the "Alt" key to enter them?

Many thanks for any direction.

You will probably get more activity on your question in a forum that is more focused on web development for the blackberry. The folks here are primarily client-side Java developers.

If you're in control of the web server side, you could try to do something to help it a little. You could add some javascript logic on the page, that would first look at the user agent header, figure out that's a blackberry browser, and then interpret the 9 letter keys as corresponding numbers.

I'm not sure if this would work or not. I don't know if you'd get key events on the field in JS. I don't know how good JS support is in the BB browser.
