Hi Luca,

welcome to the forum!

Your script works here, I can only type numbers into the field.
So no idea what your problem is?

P.S.
Personal note:
A little "Hello" or something would not have hurt for the very first posting.

AHA! :D

OK, do this:

Code: Select all

on keyDown pKey 
   ## All numbers are allowed:
   if pKey is a number then
      pass keyDown 
   else
      
      ## Only ONE decimal point allowed, so we have to check:
      if pKey = "." AND "." is not in me then
         pass keydown
      else
         beep
      end if
      beep
   end if
end keyDown
Tested and works!


Best
