Hi there,

You can use a text field and just enter numbers - it will work with all calculations and such just the same, but you of course won't see the number pad on iOS and Android by default. Unfortunately an integer value on HanDBase has to contain a value, so it will default to zero unless otherwise specified.

when you enter a number, you do not have to delete the 0 before entering. You can just enter the number, and when you save, HanDBase will drop the leading zero. The only time it will keep the leading zero is if you have a Float, and type a number less than 1.
Have a good day
