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.Click on the control to display its properties on the panel at the left side of the Dynaform design.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.
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).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.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.To learn more, see the documentation on Java Script's Reg Exp and read this tutorial on regular expressions.Process Maker provides some example regular expressions which can be inserted into the validate property.To see the list of examples, click on the Help button.Then, click on one of the examples in the list to insert it and then it can be customized to fit your needs.(the first letter in every word is changed to uppercase).Select the type of transformation inside the properties of the control. Take into account that leaving it as "none", the text will not have any transformation and will be saved just like the final user entered it.Changes will be shown when the form is rendered inside the preview or when running a case. This property defines the maximum number of characters which can be input into a text control field.This property is also a validation made over these fields, but if a regular expression has been set inside the "Validate" property, this validation will be verified first before the Max. Theoretically the property definition allows a maximum of 9,999,999,999 characters to be entered into the field, but the web browser probably will not have enough memory to handle that amount of input.
