To allow to type only numbers into input textbox by using javascript, You can use following solutions below.

This one is using the keycode method. It allows to type numbers, backspace, but also other characters, that are assigned to the number keys, for example !"£$%^&*().

<script type="text/javascript">

function keyPressed(){
var key = event.keyCode || event.charCode || event.which ;
return key;


<input type="text" onKeyDown="javascript: var keycode = keyPressed(event); if( (keycode<48 || keycode>57) && (keycode<96 || keycode>105) && keycode!=8 ){ return false; }" />

This one is using the regex method. It checks entered values and according to regular expression pattern it will strip every non-number character.

<input type="text" id="textbox" onKeyUp="javascript: var value = document.getElementById('textbox').value; var updatedvalue = value.replace(/[^0-9]/g,''); document.getElementById('textbox').value=updatedvalue; " />
