If TextInput contains 10 digits, Success, Error

HI Everyone, 


I am trying to create a data validation formula for phone numbers. I want the Match function to count if there are 10 numbers and if so, no notification, if not, display an error message. I do not want any custom formatting like If(IsMatch( LeftParen & Digit & Digit & Digit &RightParen & Space& Digit & Digit & Digit & Hyphen & Digit & Digit & Digit & Digit), Success,Error).


I simply want to ensure people are typing 10 numbers. That's all. I have input masking overlayed so this is why i only need to verify that 10 numbers are inputted.  


Any help is much appreciated!

Consider the following:

If(CountRows(Filter(Split(yourPhoneNumberValue, ""), IsNumeric(Result)))=10, Success, Error)


So, if you had a label to display if there is not a valid phone number, set the Visible property to:

!(CountRows(Filter(Split(yourPhoneNumberValue, ""), IsNumeric(Result)))=10)


I hope this is helpful for you.
