Issue #1 -- NumberFormatException thrown (*)
Issue #2 -- the error dialog shows an ambiguous message taht starts with "For input string: "1,100.123""
Issue #3 -- click OK to dismiss the error dialog. Click in the Value and Description fields: notice only Value is editable at this point.
See #136 for screen shot
After a quick peek into the code, I see that, upon entering "999999949.82" into the 'Value' text-field, we have in the save button, the text-field has the value of "999,999,949.82". The code tries to parse this text-field (with all of the commas) as a double: hence NumberFormatException.
code-area: SaveModelStateView.java in the exampleplugin project.
*remove the code that inserts commas into the number
*regex to punch out the commas
*the first-solution here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11973383/how-to-parse-number-string-containing-commas-into-an-integer-in-java
Upon further inspection, the input to the 'Value' text field was being injected with commas by Java's NumberFormat
