    Are you are pertaining to the one found in the Text box or Text field properties? (Please see image below)

    Then this is the option where you can choose an option for a valid character entry.

    Like for example I created a text field and set it to numeric only for a valid entry format.

    So if I will type Alphabetic there, I will get an error. (Please see screenshot below)


    Hope this clarifies a bit and enlightened you with regards to valid entry format.

    Kindly let us know if you have further questions or inquiry.

    Thank you for using JotForm.
