Edit mask

Specific custom fields have an option of editing their mask. This is a way of limitation the values that can be written in this fields by user. Mask is a string that determines what can be filled in a field - you can restrict inserting numbers, letters, signs, etc. For more information, please click this link.

The mask can be used for the ensuring that field can be filled only by numbers (e.g. the date field) with no letters, etc. This is a partial control of inserted text.

The example mask in the picture is:

(\w|[\.\-])[email protected](\w|[\-]+\.)*(\w|[\-]){2,63}\.[a-zA-Z]{2,4}

The mask specifies that you can insert only email address into this field in the form "[email protected]".
