Validation error on GeoODK collect for restricting numeric digit entry to 10

Hi, I have applied validation code for field-

add question - contact number

type- Numeric

The validation code used by me is : regex(.,’^[0-9]{10}$’)

When I deploy the form, on the ODK collect, only 9 digits can be entered. It does not allow entry of 10th digit.

Using the same regular expression as validation to restrict to 6 digits is possible.

What can be another validation code that can be used ?

Hi Sayali,
The ‘number’ / ‘integer’ question type is restricted to no more than 9 digits. To work around this you can create a text question, which allows any number of characters. Your regex already restricts your input to numbers of course. Finally, to show the number keyboard on Android devices even when using a text question just set the appearance of the question to ‘numbers’.

Best,

Tino
