    Hi! Does anyone know how to intercept every change to a number input field (for example position x in transform), perform some calculations on the entered string and write a changed value to the property. For example if someone inputs a german comma-separator "123,456" it should get interpreted as "123.456". I only need this for Transform, so if the solution is only applicable for Transforms that's fine, but a general solution for all float input fields would be nice.

    My current solution is to completely rewrite the transform inspector based on this wiki script and replace each PropertyField by 3 text input labels, check for changes and parse to floats. But then again this won't work well with the Advanced Inspector plugin, which already does some rewriting.

    I am aware of PropertyDrawer but so far I was only able to rewrite typeof( float ), not Vector3 or Transform.
