Adding an Input Mask

The following section describes how to apply an Input Mask to a Form Field when you are designing a Form.

The Input Mask is a Field Property available for Text Fields and can be used to constrain what Users enter to a Field when entering data. It can be used to make sure that users enter certain digits or letters. 

Input Masks can also be used to create customised Serial Numbers which are more easily traceable.

Input Masks are particularly useful in Forms where the User needs to submit Administrative Codes.
