Autoformat of Canadian postal code

Recommended Posts

Hi @JanineB - if you would like to autoformat the text when you are typing and limit to only 6 characters, you may use Cleave.js . For more info, you may check it here: https://nosir.github.io/cleave.js/

To apply this in the Submission Form, insert a Header and Footer and paste this code in the Footer:

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/cleave.js/1.6.0/cleave.min.js" integrity="sha512-KaIyHb30iXTXfGyI9cyKFUIRSSuekJt6/vqXtyQKhQP6ozZEGY8nOtRS6fExqE4+RbYHus2yGyYg1BrqxzV6YA==" crossorigin="anonymous" referrerpolicy="no-referrer"></script>


var cleave = new Cleave('#InsertRecordFIELDNAME', {
    blocks: [3,3],
    uppercase: true
}); //Format the input

document.addEventListener('BeforeFormSubmit', function(event) {

var ad = document.querySelector("input[name='InsertRecordFIELDNAME']").value;

	function is_caPostalCode(str) {
      	regexp = /^([A-Z][0-9][A-Z])\s*([0-9][A-Z][0-9])$/;
      	if (regexp.test(str)==false) {
          alert("Postal Code invalid");

// check if the postal code is invalid or not


Make sure to disable the HTML Editor in the Advanced tab of the Footer.

Hope this helps!
