    Default Form Field Validation of PhoneNumber type

    I am setting a Form Edit Field as a single line type then using Validation options to check if it is a PhoneNumber type. No matter what Format I chose it will not validate the number. I have gotten the Form Edit Field as a Tel Type to work with ddd-ddd-dddd but when I send it to a MySQL VarChar field it is a negative number. Trying to minimize the edit functions for retrieving and display the data back on another page for editing.

    Anyone know the syntax for PatternMatch?

    setting validation on a phone number is a big mistake

    many times I want to buy something online, I can't check out because the form rejects Australian phone numbers

    do you want business from all over the world or only your local area?

    I will only be doing business in the US right now. I will rely on my administrator to input the number correctly.

    Thanks for you input.
