Masked Input allows a user to more easily enter fixed width input where you would like them to enter the data in a certain format (dates, phone numbers, etc).
What is Mask Format
A masked input is defined by a format made up of mask literals and masks definitions. The following mask definitions are predefined:
a – Represents an alpha character (A-Z,a-z)
9 – Represents a numeric character (0-9)
* – Represents an alphanumeric character (A-Z,a-z,0-9)
How to use:
Easy Registration Forms allows configuring mask format within field options. Here are examples of some of the general purpose formats:
Date: 99/99/9999 (e.g. 12/01/2018)
Phone: (99) 999-9999 (e.g. (91) 123-4567)
Once given the masking format, save and preview the form. In the above example, our masking format for Phone field is : (99)-9999999999
While filling the Phone field, the system will allow the user to enter only in the given format.
