Hi Lionel,

Zolnai is contributing a nice feature to LibreOffice Base, but in the
review of the patch I'm hitting what should be a simple issue: how to
"get" a number (or special value All) from the user?

See also my previous reply to Zolnai where I mentioned NumericBox and
the NumericFormatter used for control fields.

The right place to extend functionality for native numbers is there.

But we also need a special value "All", so maybe Zolnai did it the
simplest way possible already :)

I think "All" could be mapped in this case to the maximum allowed value,
couldn't it?

One question I'm less sure about:

In the non-ASCII digit locales, is there any reason to reject ASCII
digits? Should we do that?

No, I don't think we should. IMHO there is no real reason to reject
ASCII digits. Which btw is also how numeric input in Calc is treated,
both ASCII and native numbers are allowed.
