One that requires the user to enter an exact amount of characters to proceed?? If they don't enter that many characters into the field then an error message displays and they cannot submit the form. I thought this could be done through masking but masking does not REQUIRE that many characters to be entered (WHICH DOESNT MAKE ANY SENSE)

I was able to reproduce the problem. There was actually an option to require the exact number but it seems removed from the textbox properties. I will create a feature request about this and let you know once this is added again.
For now, you can use Masked Input Widget. This might help.

That widget doesn't do it either.
This seems like a really really simple feature? To require a certain amount of characters to be entered?

I can also suggest adding a conditional statement to control the input for now. In your case the conditional statement should check if the last character is equal to "_":
Hope this would be of help per now. But please be sure that we will keep you posted with any updates as to this issue via this thread.

Omg, seriously. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!
I have been trying to get this question answered for ever... no one seemed to even understand what I wanted. They would just give me ridiculous answers.
So yea, thank you.
You are appreciated (:

Great! Glad to see that the workaround provided by our colleague works great for you. I see that the issue with the Input Mask is also forwarded to our backend team. If there is any update in this regard, you'll be posted here.
