Restrict String Data type to receive Alphabets only

Hi,

Is there any way to specify appearance of String field to show Alphabet keyboard only.

For example a field to capture Respondent_Name will be a string field. I want to specify that no one should be able to enter 123 in that. Only alphabets A-Z or a-z should be entered. Can we use some attribute like we have appearance="numbers" for numbers.

Thanks

By default only the default keyboard shows. You can use regex on a
constraint to only allow letters to be saved on swipe. Something like
regex(., '[A-Za-z]') would work.
