Enforcing Values with Combination of Specific Charaters and Numbers

Hello,

 

I am working on a solution where user should enter his/her PAN Number. (PAN is Permanent Account Number issued by Income Tax Department in India). The PAN is consisting of 10 digit alphanumeric number out of which first 5 are characters then 4 numbers and then again 1 character (Example: ABCDE1234Z). 

 

I want to have a validation/restriction that, the user must enter the PAN in the given format only - first 5 are characters then 4 numbers and then again 1 character. If any other combination (ABCDEFG123 or 1111111111) he/she enters then it should not allow to be submitted. 

 

How can we achieve this?

 

Regards,

Akshay

Hi Akshay

As @jlindstrom correctly says, IsMatch is the way to do this.

The following expression will return true for a matching PAN number.

IsMatch("ABCDE1234Z", 
        "[A-Z]{5}[0-9]{4}[A-Z]{1}"
)

If you're using a form, you can add the following to your submit button.

 

If(IsMatch(txtPanNumber.Text, 
        "[A-Z]{5}[0-9]{4}[A-Z]{1}"
        ),
   SubmitForm(FormName),
   Notify("Invalid PAN Number"),
)
