Title

Input Masks / Placeholders

Post

I'm new to Filemaker, but have some MS Acess experience.

I've looked for input masks for phone numbers and have found several functions to calculate the input into a format. But I cannot find out how to have the empty field displayed with placeholders, such as "(xxx) xxx-xxxx" and then the user inputs the phone number, with the x's being replaced. Can this be done in Filemaker? I would like to see the format, as the user inputs, and restrict them to that format. Specifically, they will input numbers only, which will replace the x's. 

Thank-you!
