form.convertToData wrong data type

The method app.form.convertToData(formId) returns a string also when the input type in the form is “number”. Is it a bug or I’m missing something here?

I have <input type=“number” name=“testNumber” … >
and I retrieve
formData.testNumber = “123”
instead of
formData.testNumber = 123

Searching on web I found this

but it’s probably too old…

Do you have any idea?
Thanks a lot!

HTML inputs values are always strings

ok, I ended up parsing the elements of the form based on their input type.
thanks a lot for your response :wink:
