Regular Expressions for inputs

I would love to be able to set a Regular Expression (for a format string) on an input textbox like "###-##-####" for SSN or "(999) 999-9999" for a telephone number.  I was directed to post my suggested idea here as I understand that Power Apps does not yet support formatting regular expressions.

 

Thanks and keep up the great work with this excellent app.  

 

As a side note, I did see a suggestion to NOT include all of a sharepoint's list items when connecting to a list as I currently am working on one that has 72 items and it takes a while to load up.

Hello @guyinazo.

 

Not sure if this is still needed, but just to answer the question.

 

It looks like the IsMatch at this link may help do what you are trying to accomplish.

Thanks, I will check this out.

We need a practaive and not a reactive solution

 

Users want to just type 2499 and have the app format it to $24.99

 

They dont want to have to guess what the developer of the app wants for the format when they enter info into a field...

 

We need Input Masks that fire OnInput and not reactive that fire OnChange like IsMatch...

is there any way to make our input text auto change format into date format?
