    Hello,

    I used your form builder to create a form for my site. For the most part I am very happy with the result, but there is one issue of concern. The phone number box allows for more than than 3-4 characters to be entered. This is a concern in case the person makes a typo. I am wondering if there is a way to restrict the number of characters that can be entered. Or, alternatively, can you amend the software? Thank you.

    Jason.

    Try using a normal text box.

    1.set the validation to numeric

    2. And set the max value to the phone number lenghth

    3. Optionaly you could have two one for the area code and one for the phon number.

    An Example
