Number Input Component
The Number Input component lets the learner enter a number into the course component. The submitted number can be saved to a Variable.
This article provides an overview of the Number Input component and component setup and behavior.
The Number Input component is an interactive component that lets the learner enter a number in an input field in the course. The Number Input component is flexible and, with the configuration set to Allow Editing, the learner can edit the entered number after submitting. The number entered can also be saved to a Variable.
The Number Input component is fully responsive.
