Topic: How to create a variable-length mask

DashMarketingGroup priority asked 1 week ago


I am trying to use the input-mask for afield where the user needs to be able to enter as few as 3 digits or as many as 5 digits. So, for example, they might enter 123 or 12345. The problem is, the following code requires the user to enter 5 digits. If they enter fewer digits then it fails"

<input type="text" id="tbTermsLimit" name="tbTermsLimit" class="form-control form-control-sm fs-6 w-50"  data-mdb-input-mask-init data-mdb-input-mask="999999"  /> 

I haven't figured out how to change this so that I can use the input-mask and let the user enter between 3 and five digits. I tried this, but it didn't work:

<input type="text" id="tbTermsLimit" name="tbTermsLimit" class="form-control form-control-sm fs-6 w-50" data-mdb-input-mask-init data-mdb-input-mask="9[3-5]" /> 

Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you!

Unfortunately, we do not support this solution. But you can use data-mdb-clear-incomplete="false" and add field validation to check if 3 or more characters are provided.

Do you plan on adding the ability to use RegEx expressions for the input-mask? It would be a GREAT addition.

At the moment no. But I'll add it to the list of ideas and maybe one day we'll add that option.
