The user will not be allowed to leave the field until its input is changed to match the regular expression.
This is a brief introduction to regular expressions which can be used in the validate property to check whether the user has entered valid input into a textbox.
When a required field is not filled-in with any value, it will not be possible to go to the next step.
For a textbox control, if needing to store a value retrieved from a database, select from the dropdown of this property the database connection that will be used (the connection must be already created in the process, see this section to learn more about it).
On a practical note, it is better to use textareas and file objects to store large amounts of data, since they are stored separately in the database and will not slow down the processing of Process Maker, nor are they subject to the same space limitations as textboxes.
For example, if the max length is set to 100 and the size is surpassed, the following message will be shown: This property allows mathematical formulas to be used within the fields of the form.
Matching strings of characters To match any string of characters, use them in the regular expression. Get more information This is just a brief introduction to regular expressions and there are more special characters which can be used.
If the input matches the regular expression, then the user will be allowed to leave the field, but if the input doesn't match, the field message will be outlined in red and the text in the Validation Error Message property will be displayed.As in the image above, the regular expression used to validate an email address provided by the help option of this property is the following: .As this validation is made for an email address, the validation also verifies that the address contains the "@" character followed again by characters that contain letters and/or numbers, a dot and after it more letters and/or numbers.Insert in this property, the SQL query to populate the option of the control from database.For a textbox control the value stored in the field will be the first value retrieved from the database.
When added to the Dyna Form design, a text control looks as follows: When running a case or in the previewing a Dyna Form, a text controls looks as follows: After adding a textbox to the Dyna Form design, it is possible to customize its functionality and behavior, using the properties panel.
