Property Documentation

regExp : regExp

This property holds the regular expression used for validation.

Note that this property should be a regular expression in JS syntax, e.g /a/ for the regular expression matching "a".

By default, this property contains a regular expression with the pattern .* that matches any string.

Below you can find an example of a TextInput object with a RegExpValidator specified:

TextInput {
    id: hexNumber
    validator: RegExpValidator { regExp: /[0-9A-F]+/ }

Some more examples of regular expressions:

  • A list of numbers with one to three positions separated by a comma:
