Numeric TextBox Select on focus

Provide an option for the Kendo UI NumericTextBox to select its value on focus.

This would be a useful feature for data entry situations so you can start typing immediately. 

We are aware of the proposed how to article but this is not a good solution for large applications. 

Can we have something like "selectOnFocus: true". The code fix for this could be:

kendo.ui.NumericTextBox.fn._focusin = function(){
  var that = this;
// code to add to Kendo source

Kind Regards,
