Good morning all. I am trying to ensure that a date field on the form I am working on validates if the entry is not more than 8 digits, and if it is more, it should display a message, and return the focus back to the field until it is correct. Below is the code I wrote but it is not working:
xfa.host.messageBox(Enter eight digits for the date in the format YYYYMMDD or use the drop down calendar.);
I do not know why it is not working, i need help. I have this code on the exit event.
if(Len($) > 8) then
xfa.host.messageBox("Enter eight digits for the date in the format YYYYMMDD or use the drop down calendar.")
I won't do this, because you'll frustrate users if there is a message shown every time they enter a wrong format.
Better you allow as many pattern as possible.
Here's an explaination:
