Set Max Digits for Form Fields | Zoho Creator Help

Max digits

 Applicable to the following numeric fields: Number, percent, decimal, and currency.
  1. Open the form builder.
  2. Select the required field.
  3. Navigate to the Field Properties -> Validation section, displayed on the right.
  4. Enter a value between 1 and 19 in the input box next to Max Digits.
Maximum character length validation will be implemented strictly for all your form fields if a record is added via Deluge, API, or email input. This validation ensures that all the records added via various inputs undergo a thorough check for their field characters to ensure they're on par with the predefined character limits that you set, thereby minimizing error handling.

If you set Max Digits with a value greater than 19, Zoho Creator will display the following prompt:

In the event that you set the Max Digits property of a numeric field with a value that is less than the digits present in existing records, Zoho Creator:
  1. Allows the existing records to be updated if the data stored in that field is left unchanged
  2. Applies the new value to validate the existing records if the data stored in the that field is edited
  3. Applies the new value to validate records added after this change This behavior is in place to ensure that existing records are not affected.
