    Field Verification

    Asked by tenantverify on June 13, 2014 at 10:10 PM

    I need to be able to include field verification for a field contain numbers. Much like the option avail. for an e mail address field. Is this possible?

    THANK YOU, this is great and is a possible option BUT... I also need to be able to format the digits, for example ##-###-####

    The formatting option does not appear to be available when using a text field even though applying numeric validation is chosen.

    Am I missing something here?

    I have checked Input Mask option and it us working. Are you saying that you can't find the input mask button when editing text box?

    I am not sure what formatting you were referring to. Kindly tell us more about the feature you are looking for?

    We will wait for our response.

    Sorry if I am adding any confusion to this. I really appreciate your help!

    What I am trying to accomplish is the following...

    A numerical field, with an input mask that will also have a second feiled below to re-enter so as to make sure the entry matches and is correct. This is pretty much the same feature/function as the e-mail field when validation is on and a duplicate field appears below.

    I have been able to perform the task as you had previously suggested: validate for numerical value, and include an input mask, HOWEVER, the duplicate field for validation of accurate entry is not something I can figure out. Is this possible?

    As a new user of Jotforms I am not at all familiar with the ins and outs but it is pretty straight forward. I had tried to research this in the forums but any info I did come across that may have possibly been related was very technical and I am not technically adept at all.
