How to allow only numeric (0-9) in HTML inputbox using jQuery?

882

I am creating a web page where I have an input text field in which I want to allow only numeric characters like (0,1,2,3,4,5...9) 0-9.

How can I do this using jQuery?

Here is the function I use:

// Numeric only control handler
jQuery.fn.ForceNumericOnly =
function()
{
    return this.each(function()
    {
        $(this).keydown(function(e)
        {
            var key = e.charCode || e.keyCode || 0;
            // allow backspace, tab, delete, enter, arrows, numbers and keypad numbers ONLY
            // home, end, period, and numpad decimal
            return (
                key == 8 || 
                key == 9 ||
                key == 13 ||
                key == 46 ||
                key == 110 ||
                key == 190 ||
                (key >= 35 && key <= 40) ||
                (key >= 48 && key <= 57) ||
                (key >= 96 && key <= 105));
        });
    });
};

You can then attach it to your control by doing:

$("#yourTextBoxName").ForceNumericOnly();
