Add New Custom Field Types

Description

It is useful to have fields that only accept numbers, fields that only accept an entry when the ticket is created and perhaps a field that accumulates the numbers you enter? This can be achieved with a patch to the appropriate .cs files and the addition of a little javascript. The changes can be found in the patch file attached.

Description of new types:

integer

Allows only integer values such as "12" and "-98329847" to be entered into the custom field.

cumulative_integer

Like integer but only allows the user to enter a value that is added to the current value. Useful for accumulating work done on a ticket or dollars spent.

set_once_integer

Like integer but only allows the user to set a value when the ticket is created. From then on the value is fixed.

Syntax of ini file:

<name> = <type>

Example:

[ticket-custom]
mycustominteger = integer
mycustominteger_cumulative = cumulative_integer
mycustominteger_setonce = set_once_integer
