     (Dutch License Plate)



    Is there an option to let the user typ in his license plate for example, but when they typ in the license plate numbers, the short dashes come in automatically?


    for example:

    What I have now, it will typ it like this: XXXXXX


    What I want to have it do: XX-XX-XX


    is it possible for a textbox to have that option?


    Thanks in advance,

    This can be done using the input mask for the text box fields:

    This would allow you to do exactly what you are looking for.  Here is a quick test form to show you how it works:
