    Phone number field validation?

    Asked by ssmediator on July 03, 2013 at 04:21 AM

    Is there a way to validate a phone number field for this kind of entry ...

    213-555-1212

    (to include the dashes)

     

    And for this kind

    213-555-1212 ext 1234

     

    If I do not validate the field, then entering just one character (usually by mistake) will allow the form to be sent.  If I validate with AlphaNumeric, then the - won't be accepted.

    Hi,

    Can you please take a look at this cloned form if this is something you want to achieve?

    If yes, all you need to do is use Phone field and turn on input mask. Please take a look at this video: http://www.screencast.com/t/0dxRWUa9q9oj

    Thank you!

    Close, (Thanks!) but not there yet.

    In the cloned form, one could not enter a phone extension...

    213-555-1212 ext 1234

    Hi,

    The only way to achieve that is modifying your form source code. Here's how to get your Form Source Code.

    Thank you!
