Email field validation

I'm running SLX 8.1 LAN client - How do I make it so that a field has to have the correct email syntax before it will let the user save the record?

Re: Email field validation

You can't - not inbuilt. You have to code it or, best way, externalise it (several controls out there). We have a util that will check/prevent and check entire database. See website for details.

Re: Email field validation

As Mike says.. you will need to customize it.. We did it for a customer for EVERY email field in CONTCAT/ACCOUNT/LEAD - created a rather complex Regex expression to do it..

 

Contact me directly if you are interested.

Re: Email field validation

We had to do it everywhere. But regex wasn't enough - had to be mx validated as well, hence 3rd party app.
