Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The MediaWiki API knows the type of a parameter (it's one of 'string', 'integer', 'timestamp', etc.).

Perhaps this can be utilized in the ApiSandbox somehow.

Inputs are already generated with parameter type in mind, but normally integer *limit parameters may accept "max" in addition to integers, for example. Date picker for appropriate fields makes sense, of course.
