I used this for the user to set a variable...<input type="number" id="number">...It works great in Chrome but in FF and IE9 the little up and down arrows do not appear.I looked around but couldn't find any answers. Thanks.
Input control type <number> is an HTML5 specific attribute that doesn't have a wide range of support yet. It is not supported in Internet Explorer (IE9 doesn't support HTML5 at all) and neither it is in FF. See this chart: http://caniuse.com/#feat=input-number
That sux....thank you!
Is there another way to have the user set a numeric value in the same manner as this, it works good in Chrome.
You could use a normal select list.
All input types default to "text" if they're not recognised so they allow you to enter a value, you just don't get the spinner.
