jQuery - Allow Only Numbers (Numerics) in Textbox using JavaScript

Apr 22, 2013

Here I will show how to use JQuery to allow only numbers in textbox or allow only numeric characters in textbox using JQuery.

In previous posts I explained jQuery Autocomplete textbox with images, jQuery lightbox slideshow, jQuery Create Rounded Corners Textbox, jQuery slideUp, slideDown and slideToggle Example, Password strength jquery plugin examples and many articles relating to JQuery, Now I will explain how to allow only numbers in textbox using JQuery.

To restrict user to enter only numbers in textbox we need to write the following code

<html xmlns="">
<title>jQuery allow only numbers or numeric characters in textbox</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
$('#txtNumeric').keydown(function (e) {
if (e.shiftKey || e.ctrlKey || e.altKey) {
} else {
var key = e.keyCode;
if (!((key == 8) || (key == 46) || (key >= 35 && key <= 40) || (key >= 48 && key <= 57) || (key >= 96 && key <= 105))) {
<input type="text" id="txtNumeric" />

Thanks but how can be avoid entering non-numeric characters at the time of page load

during page load the textbox allows entering non numeric values...this can lead to bugs...

Actually it won't allow non numeric characters. In this blog jQuery plugin taking sometime to load onlines that's why it's allowing non numeric values during plugin load. If you add jquery plugin in your local folder it won't take much time to load and it won't allow non numeric characters. Still if you are not satisfied use JavaScript for that check this article
