Data Validation in LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2

Hi. I've been asked to improve an existing form that was converted from Acrobat Pro to LiveCycle Designer a ways back by someone else. The problem is I can't get the Date, Phone and Salary validation to work like it did in Acrobat Pro. It seems the validation has taken a step back in LiveCycle.



I would like to get the data validation to work the same as it did in Acrobat Pro.



Phone Number Validation:

1. Allow: 9999999999 or 999-999-9999 or 999.999.9999 to be entered

2. Convert what is entered to (999) 999-9999

3. Only allow numeric digits or - or . to be entered, no alphabetic

4. Only allow 10 digits to be entered, not counting - or .

5. When bad data is entered, give message and put focus back on field.



Date Validation:

1. Allow: 08/08/08 or 08/08/2008 or 8/8/08 or 08/08/08 or - instead of /

2. Convert what is entered to 08/08/2008

3. Only allow 10 digit/char max.

4. When bad data is entered, give message and put focus back on field.



Salary Validation:

1. Allow: 9999999

2. Convert to $999,999.00

3. Only allow numeric digits to be entered, no alphabetic

4. Only allow 6 digits to be entered.

5. When bad data is entered, give message and put focus back on field.



I've been able to get some of this to work using built-in and custom patterns strung together with |, but it doesn't work as nice as the Acrobat Pro did and I've had trouble limiting number of inputed digit/chars. Do I need some complicated scripts to make this work?



Any ideas?



Thanks!
