I feel like in a past post I saw some syntax for using an input mask for an email address field, If I wasn't dreaming this and one exists please share the syntax.

Thanks!

Brent

Hi Brent, 

Input masks don't work with arbitrary length text portions, as you would expect from parts of an e-mail address.  As  documented, you can use a regex function to validate an email address:

regex(., '^(([^<>()\[\]\\.,;:\s@"]+(\.[^<>()\[\]\\.,;:\s@"]+)*)|(".+"))@((\[[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}])|(([a-zA-Z\-0-9]+\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,}))$')

@JamesTedrick 

I'm getting this text populating 3.14 Survey123 Connect.

I haven't used the email body::esri:inputMask in a while, what am I doing wrong?

Hi,

The regex needs to be inputed into the "constraint" column in your XLSForm. Also, it seems like the preview won't show the validation, but it works well when the form in published. Hope this helps
