Input mask is useful, but it doesn't cover all situations (for example where a limited subset of characters are required.)
As a programmer I'm used to using regular expressions to specify groups of acceptable characters in a string.
Is it possible for you to create an input box that verifies its input using a regular expression?

Hi! I agree that when you need to filter input fields that require a bit more complex validation, then regex is the go-to solution of most programmers. Yes our input masks work well for simple validation, but at the moment, that's the extent of the capabilities of the form fields.
For the meantime, I'm adding this as a feature request on your behalf. Although I won't be able to give you any timeframe, rest assured, our developer will take a look at the feasibility of adding this feature and you'll be updated on this same thread once it's available.

Thanks, that's pretty much exactly the response I was hoping for.
The solution given in the thread you link is also useful. I'll consider how best to integrate it in future forms.
