I think it may be helpful to have a validation option that allows spaces to be input in alpha values or integer values. Many Names and Numbers needs either spaces or phone numbers need - or () and spaces.

Just a thought. Love the extension works great.

Hi Cliff,

See the hack here for a US phone number. I imagine that it would be fairly simple to extend or adopt his to other formats.

You can easily amend the RegEx code in the standard validation code to add an extra group of characters.

I realize I'm jumping on a two year old thread, but this followup is directly relevant to it.

I'm working with CF 3.1 RC 5.5.
To add this US phone number validation, I believe I need to change three files:

1. administrator/components/com_chronocontact/admin.chronocontact.html.php
Vicinity of line 2300, I need to create a new row on the validation tab for val_validate_phone

2. components/com_chronocontact/js/mooValidation.js
Vicinity of line 200, I need to add the validation regex referenced in the link above

3. administrator/components/com_chronocontact/admin.chronocontact.php
Vicinity of line 1975, I need to add $params[] = "val_validate_phone=";

Am I missing any other files or changes?

Thanks, and once I've completed this, I'll post a reply with the exact changes made.

Hi cohncons,

The validation method that ChronoForms uses has changed in the meantime. It now uses LiveValidation and the mooValidation.php file isn't in use.

The best way to do this is to use a custom validation like this in the Form JavaScript box
window.addEvent('load', function() {
var phone_val = new LiveValidation('phone', {
validMessage: 'Perfect, well done!',
onlyOnSubmit: true
});
phone_val.add(
Validate.Format, {
pattern: /\(?\b[0-9]{3}\)?[-. ]?[0-9]{3}[-. ]?[0-9]{4}\b/i,
failureMessage: 'Oops! THat's not a valid phone number.'
});
});
You may need to change the regexp and 'phone' needs to match the id of the input you are validating.

Thanks for that - LiveValidation looks great!

Quick Question about the regexp,

Im thinking about splitting the landline and mobile numbers up as often I would prefer a landline over a mobile. Unlike US phone numbers we simply enter them all in one go but the first 2 numbers are always either 01, 02 or 03.

Likewise mobile phone numbers over here are always 07, so how to achieve this I wonder?

Regards,

Tom.

Bob...

As you know, I'm new to CF. I'm a bit confused about the implementation of this hack. Do I need to put the field name(s) in the code? I'm assuming this would go in the server-side validation field - am I correct?

Hi Rainie,

The input id needs to be just phone id="phone" name="phone" (the _val bit is only used in the JavaScript).

Hi Rainie dey,

There's an unescaped quote in my Failure Message that will cause a problem
window.addEvent('load', function() {
var phone_val = new LiveValidation('phone', {
validMessage: 'Perfect, well done!',
onlyOnSubmit: true
});
phone_val.add(
Validate.Format, {
pattern: /\(?\b[0-9]{3}\)?[-. ]?[0-9]{3}[-. ]?[0-9]{4}\b/i,
failureMessage: 'Oops! That is not a valid phone number.'
});
});

You also have MooTools 1.2 loading on the page and that might cause problems but fix the quote first and see.
