I think that isn't worth to create a new spinner widget.

My idea is to have s simple text field instead of the spinner with an
attached regex check. We already have something similar for the input of
the port number in the connection wizard.

I see two options for that:
- either to have a dialog containing this text field. This is super easy
to imlement.
- or to extend the normal In-Place value editor, so that is does only
accept numeric values. This would avoid an dialog popup.
