Empty default value for Number Input not working

I have a number input with an empty default value on a form I am using for entering a new record. The component still insists on showing 0 or 0.00 (depending on the Format) This means that if the user clicks into the component, they have to first clear the existing 0 value before entering the new one which is an annoying UX.

If the default value is null so should the value. I am instead using a normal text input right now to avoid this and speed up data entry.

Did you select "allow null value"?

Why is there no Allow null value option for text input fields? I searched everywhere and cannot find out how to do this

Hey @Ashton_Teng!

This option is present on number inputs specifically to allow null instead of 0 as Bradly mentioned, text inputs will default to "" instead of null. You can try passing {{ textInput1.value || null }} wherever you need to reference it but I'm curious to hear more about your use case!

Was this option removed from the Number Input?
I no longer see the Allow null value option, and I would really like to use it.

Aha, found it. It got moved to Validation rules
