I need to be able to check the formats of some string fields while collecting or editing a feature in the ArcGIS Mobile for Windows app. If the format is incorrect then I need to alert the user that it needs to be fixed. Are there any examples of how this is done?

Don't know if you are still looking for an answer. But one option would be to create an editing task or extension. If you work with a task you could connect to the closing event handler on the EditAttributesDialog
m_ead = new EditAttributesDialog(m_feature);
m_ead.Text = "Collect Feature";
m_ead.Closing += new System.ComponentModel.CancelEventHandler(m_ead_Closing);
The in the closing event you could loop through the various fields in the feature and implement your checks. If a check fails then you could show a message dialog with the error and then specify
e,Cancel = true;
Which will return the user to the editattributesdialog.
