Use variables as up and down limits.

How can I use variables as up limit, down limit and defaut value into number input?

not sure if we fully understand your question, sorry. Where do you have available the variables you need to use? They should be recovered from other inputs of the form? Then maybe we could share with you any js code to modify the validators on fly.

Thanks, regards

I want use other number input as up and down limits of a number input.
Is it possible?

Yes, then you need to add the proper javascript to your calculator. You will need these functions:

To set maximum or minimum values to a field named 'yourfieldname':

CB( "input" ).rules( "add", {max: 3});


CB( "input" ).rules( "add", {min: 1});

You only need to replace the name of the field, and maximum or minimum values.

In order to recover a value from another input

var value=CB( "input" ).val();

To remove previos rules added :

CB( "input" ).rules( "remove", "max" );
CB( "input" ).rules( "remove", "min" );

You surely want to change this values when another field changes, so the full function should look like:

CB( "input" ).change(function(){

CB( "input" ).rules( "remove", "max" );
CB( "input" ).rules( "remove", "min" );
var value=CB( "input" ).val();
CB( "input" ).rules( "add", {max: value});


Hope this helps, regards

Can I use php variables (used in "Code") as down limit or default value?

No, because PHP code is executed after the form is validated and submited.
