Warning

Avoid using message, image and video controls inside a section that contains other controls that you may want to set to required/not required (either via the Forms Designer or using Business Rules. Since these three control types always contains contain a value, it can cause a section, or other controls in a section, to become required. If you must include a these control types, place it outside the section. Another alternative is to write rules for the individual controls within a section to set them to visibile/invisibile or required/not required.

Phone pattern

Lets say you would like to change the phone control validation from the

' current built-in pattern. Cloud customers must apply Patterns to a text control while in-house customers have two options

  1. Apply patterns to a control - Like other control properties, the pattern property will not need to be redone when you upgrade

    .
  2. Modify the built-in values in the types.xsd file. Be aware that if you modify the types.xsd file, you will have to make this change each time you perform a

Apply a Pattern to a Control for a Phone Number

If you are using 

Frevvoproduct
 Online, you will not have access to types.xsd. Both cloud and in-house customers, can override the pattern in the phone control by setting its pattern property. You can only restrict a built-in pattern (such as the phone control) but not change the pattern via the pattern property. For example you can add the pattern 203-\d{3}-\d{4}.  Now all phone numbers must start with area code 203.

Tip

The Pattern property will not need to be redone when you upgrade 

Frevvoproduct
.

A pattern such as ##-####-#### or ####-###-### is not a simple restriction. To impose validation against this pattern you must start with a Text control rather than a Phone control

  1. Drag a Text control to your form
  2. Add your pattern to the Text control's pattern property: \d{2}-\d{4}-\d{4} or \d{4}-\d{3}-\d{3}
  3. Change the error message and help properties to assist the user in understanding the required pattern
