Form Validation for Negative / Positive Number


The form validation for "Number" should be enhanced to either allow a positive and/or negative number.

We leverage number validation for submitters to enter quantities. This number would never be a negative number, and from a data integrity perspective we cannot simply assume the user intended the positive inverse. It's too easy to enter a negative number by mistake via toggling from field-to-field via the tab button paired with scrolling of the mouse. Selecting the individual "up" and "down" arrows are also way too small. There should be a programmatic safeguard to disallow users from being able to do this by having an admin option to select the following sub-nodes:

  1. "Positive Number"
  2. "Negative Number"
  3. "Positive or Negative Number"
