Text, float, and integer attributes with a Text Field Attribute Type are all edited in a Text Attribute Editor page, although different options appear depending on which type of attribute is being edited.
If you have a text, float, or integer attribute with an Attribute Type of Single Select Menu, Multi Select Menu, or Single Select Pick List, see the Menu Attributes topic.
Text fields are more open-ended, allowing the user to type in values. Displays a text field or text area that the user can populate with data. This can be displayed as a text field or as a single-select or multi-select menu.
Floating point number fields validate numbers with decimal values. This can be displayed as a text field or as a single-select or multi-select menu.
Integer fields validate whole numbers—those without decimal values. This can be displayed as a text field or as a single-select or multi-select menu.
If your text, float, or integer attribute has a Single Select Menu or Multi Select Menu type, you will also see a Menu Population section. For more information, see Menu Attributes.
