"FormatDecimal" and  should not be used on integers by default when scaffolding screen from entity

When scaffolding a screen from an entity, to me it doesn't make a lot of sense that long integer or integer attributes are default formatted with the "FormatDecimal" function.

I remove them most of the time, so actually it generates more manual work than that it automates.

Hi Daniël,

You are right. We're working on the next generation of web applications (you'll hear more about it soon), and that's something that we'll probably revisit when we implement scaffolding.

Thanks,

Hi Daniël,

Thanks for your idea. In the meantime, as you know, we've released reactive web applications and in them this idea in particular was implemented.

Thanks for your ideas and keep them coming,

Tiago Simões
