A small UX improvement is to use a number input instead of the classic input for the Gantt months field.

- users can select the number of months using the mouse or/and mouse wheel
- it validates the field value client side
- on mobile devices, the numeric keyboard is shown

Thank you for the interesting patch. But I found that the input#months field is too wide in Firefox. Could you add some CSS to adjust the width to your patch?

Firefox: input#months is too wide

Chrome: no problem.
