  • you can add custom validation in validation.js file in js/prototype.and add class to your input – sivakumar Jul 24 '14 at 11:07

  • @sivakumar, I created this custom attribute by Manage-Attribute, How Can I Add class to select in backend – Charlie Jul 24 '14 at 11:12

One option that would not involve any custom code would be to make this option a select field and then add all the option values from 20-100. Sure it may not be the prettiest option but would work nicely.

If you wanted to not have to add all the options to the attribute you could create this attribute and set a source model. In this source model you can then populate the select and not have to add all the options yourself.

Simply setup your attribute in a setup script with the source model

$setup->addAttribute('catalog_product', 'custom_select', array(
    'input' => 'select',
    'type' => 'int',
    'label' => 'Custom Select',
    'visible' => 1,
    'required' => 0,
    'user_defined' => 1,
    'source' => 'mymodule/selectoptions',
    'global' => Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Attribute::SCOPE_GLOBAL,

And then add your source model code.

class Mypackage_Mymodule_Model_Selectoptions extends Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Attribute_Source_Abstract {

    public function getAllOptions($withEmpty = true)
        // This code could be done in a for loop :)
        $options = array(
            array('label' => '20', 'value' => 20),
            array('label' => '21', 'value' => 21),
            array('label' => '22', 'value' => 22),
            array('label' => '23', 'value' => 23),
        if ($withEmpty) {
            array_unshift($options, array('label' => '', 'value' => ''));

        return $options;
