Description

when trying to change the number of posts in the lists view using 'Screen Options', if i change the number to 1000 in Chrome (mac, current and beta versions tested), i see an error message popup thats cut off, scrolling down quickly i see the message reads "Value must be less than or equal to 999." (screen shots attached)

testing in firefox and ie, i see i am unable to add more than three digits, i guess thats ok, but its unclear why i can't type 1000 - no user feedback is given.

testing in safari (latest version), i type in 1000, get no error, click apply, no error message, but the actual number is not changed when hitting apply. typing in 9999 i get the same results.

suggestion: show an error or warning in all browsers when trying to enter a number over 999; correct issue with chrome/dialog cropped

The tooltips are fixed in #21904.

I think #21904 is sufficient to resolve this as fixed. It is probably best to continue to leave this to the individual browsers for now.

ok - it looks like 21904 corrects the tooltip issue for chrome. thanks.

in safari though, i'm still getting this behavior: i type in 1000, and hit apply. no error or warning, it just doesn't work. that seems broken.

It depends on the browser if it a) supports the HTML5 number input type and b) does input validation. Chromes does both, Safari only a).
