Nearly every input field includes an Input Mask property. An input mask refers to a specific expression that allows a user to only enter data in a certain format.
For example, you may want users to enter an order number that follows a certain standard (000 - S00) where the 0 is a number and the S is a letter. The Input Mask feature will force the user’s input into that format.
Input Mask Options
Digits Only: 0
- Digits Optional: 9
- Digits Recursive: #
- Alphanumeric: A
- Alphabetical: S
Other allowed characters
An input mask can contain other characters to assist in your mask such as slashes, commas, spaces, dashes, periods, parentheses, colons, percentages, etc.
