Allow users to set manually a quantity of items to display in a tree view

This module extends the functionality of web module, to improve list views and
to allow users to display custom quantity of items.

(By default, in Odoo, user can only display 80 / 200 / 500 / 2000 elements in
a tree view)


To use this module, you need to:

#. Go to a list view
#. Click on the item '1 - 80 of xxx'
#. Tip a custom quantity of item you want to see, and then press return

Sample for res.partner model with a limit of 3:

Technical information

* Replace a select element by an input with datalist option. That allows
to set a custom value, or to select an option. (same options as before:
80 / 200 / 500 / 2000 / unlimited);

* WARNING: 'Datalist' is a HTML5 tag; If your browser is not HTML5
compliant, the options will not be displayed (but it is possible for
user to select manually a value);
See browser Support:

* The display of the datalist input can be different depending of the browser.
* FireFox Display:

* Chrome Display:

Known issues / Roadmap

* When pressing Esc key, it could be user friendly to return to the previous
state (before editing the quantity).
