@Randy, I believe increasing the range of integer field entails more than just that.  Python's integer has a maximum value of sys.maxint.  Which depending on the operating system you are using can be 2147483647 (Windows 64 bit, 10 digit figure), 9223372036854775807 (Linux 64 bit), or other.

Even if you use char field as suggested by @Umarshankar, you need to be aware of that limitation if the integer field is to be used in calculation.

Hello Ramanan,

Here another simple solution.

1. Take your field as char field as long you want.

2. apply widget='integer' from xml file.

Hope this will help.

Integer field can take only 10 digit as its input, if you need more values you can try with char as your input field type.
