Formatting a dateTime in Web Form similar to InputMask

I have a public-facing survey working well using the desktop/mobile app and am modifying it to work on the Web. During the testing phase, one of testers has noted that the manual input of a date into a dateTime question allows the user to input a dates that are physically impossible (e.g. 123/4567/8901); we know a hunter somehow would input a date like this. I have tried some methods for restricting the input to MM/DD/YYYY to match the desktop/mobile app with little success. I have seen where I can use a regular expression to do this. I think the syntax would be regex(.,'^\d{1,2}"/"\d{1,2}"/"\d{4}$'). I also am not sure which column this would be placed.

 

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
