    My previous post is incorrect, it forces ###,### so you can't enter something like 1,000
    Switching to something like [#][#][#][,][#][#][#][,][#][#][#][,][#][#]# does not seem to work either, because entering 1,000 still wants a trailing digit to be added, so I assume it is matching from the start, rather than what is required.

    It was my previous post on the same thread, about input masks. I wanted to have a mask that would allow numeric input for whole dollars, with the commas (separating thousands, millions, etc.) to be optional.

    I found this to work for me in conjunction with making the field required: [#][#][#][,][#][#][#][,][#][#][#][,][#][#][#] 

    The point of my original post is that the documentation provided for the topic of input masking does not include anything about using the square brackets for optional elements. I forget where I stumbled on that gem.
