Numeric field changes to 2147483647 automatically


Level 4


I have a numeric field in the form which is not taking any value more than 9 digits. If we try to enter more than 9 digits, It automatically changes to

'2147483647' number.

Can anyone the reason pls and also the solution.

Thanks In advance

Hi Abhiram,

What validation pattern have you set for the field?

Hi Abhiram,

This is the maximum for a numeric field, anything above this value will be truncated (this is 2^31 -1).  You may want the following JavaScript in the change event of the field.

var newValue = parseInt(xfa.event.newText, 10);

if (isNaN(newValue) || newValue < -2147483648 || newValue > 2147483647)


    xfa.event.change = "";


If you need larger values your will need use a text field.
