Bug #14515 writeUrl only uses writeString, never writeNumber

Description: ------------ When making a link with createUrl function, numbers cannot later be used for formulas like SUM(1A:2A) because createUrl always uses createString for making the text in the field. Test script: --------------- $worksheet->writeUrl($vRow, $vCol, $vProductUrl, $vProductPrice, $format_blue_number); Expected result: ---------------- A link with a number visible should be inserted into the sheet. Actual result: -------------- A link with a string is inserted to the sheet. Now formulas concerning numbers are not working with these cells. It can be fixed easily by changing line 1881 in WorkSheet to $str_error = is_numeric($str) ? $this->writeNumber($row1, $col1, $str, $format) : $this->writeString($row1, $col1, $str, $format);

Gustav's suggestion works, but in addition to _writeUrlWeb it needs to be applied in _writeUrlInternal and _writeUrlExternal. I've attached the patch to resolve this bug/feature.

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
