Possible to limit data type in textline attributes?

Hello,

Is it possible to limit the data type of an attribute to be integer-only?

We want to create a set of attributes to store information on our subscribers related to their skills, such as

“Please rate your experience with Hydraulics / Pneumatics on a scale of 1-10”

I think the easiest way to set this up would be to add a textline attribute that would only accept integers between 1-10. Is this possible?

Another option would be to use an attribute of type = select, but we actually have 32x of these attributes related to different skills, and adding these as “select” types 32x times would be a pain to say the least. Especially if we ever want to make a change to the option boxes and we’d need to change it in 32 places…

fwiw, this is the google form we’re deprecating as we move from google spreadsheets into phplist:

Please let me know if there’s any way to limit the data types of a textline attribute or if you have any other recommendations on how to add these attributes to phplist.

Thank you,

#2

@michiel May know about the enforceability of attribute data types


#3

There’s no standard mechanism yet to enforce the content, but you can write a quick plugin, that does that. Check out the example plugin how to make that work.
