# Field Type Settings

The Number field type has four available settings.

Field Limits Number Field Options

Field Content

The Field Content setting allows you to select whether the number should be a float (decimal) or an Integer (whole number).

Input Min

Choose the minimum number this input may be.

Input Max

Choose the maximum number this input may be.

Input Step

Define the step increments the number may be.

# Field Type Use

Using the field type is as easy as typing numbers in the field.

# Template Tags

For Channel Entries, Grid, and Blocks, getting the field output in your templates works as you would expect with the {my_field_name} tag — using Grid field prefixes for your Grid fields.

For Low Variables, there is one additional step if you want your field formatting to match what you selected in your field settings:

{exp:low_variables:single var="my_var"}
