toNumericString function

String toNumericString(
  1. String? inputString,
  2. {bool allowPeriod = false,
  3. bool allowHyphen = true,
  4. String mantissaSeparator = '.',
  5. String? errorText,
  6. bool allowAllZeroes = false,
  7. int? mantissaLength}
)

errorText if you don't want this method to throw any errors, pass null here allowAllZeroes might be useful e.g. for phone masks
