Bug report #12387
Value map fields are always treated as text

I have a PostGIS layer with a numeric field, which is configured to "Value Map" edit widget.
When I’m editing the field value in attribute table panel, I get a dropdown list of mapped descriptions, but when I choose one, the value in a table doesn’t change to what I've chosen.
When I edit the same field through an Edit Feature form, the value does change. Can anyone confirm if it’s a bug?
I'm running QGIS 2.8 on OS X 10.10.2 installed with Homebrew.

This is because the value map treat the list always as text. There is already a ticket about this issue, but is more because of the "wrong" list ordering when the list is made of numbers. I guess that when it will be possible to specify that a value map has to be considered a number list then both issue will be solved.
