Numeric Component

With the numeric component, you can describe a numeric value with a specific number of decimals and a unit.

Numeric Component Usage

When adding this component to a shape or piece, specify a name (required) and description (optional) indicative of the sort of content you wish for it to contain. This description will be visible to those who build content based off of this shape. Optionally, you can also specify one or more units, as well as the number of decimals the number must have.

This component is not translatable, meaning that the same value/units will be stored for all translations. It’s best to use non-translatable fields for data that will be the same regardless of language (like model numbers, for instance).

Numeric component on shape

When an editorial user adds content to this component, numeric values and decimal precision (if specified) will be enforced. If multiple units were specified, there will be a drop-down menu allowing selection of the appropriate unit; one of them must be selected.
