Show Custom Dialog: how to validate input

Ok, so I'll admit it. The last time I did any development in FMP, it was version 4! I now have 17 and A LOT has changed!

 

I want my user to input a date to be used in various scripts. I love that Show Custom Dialog lets me save the input to a variable.

 

But can someone tell me the best way to make sure the format is correct? If I prompt the user for a date, I don't want them to enter text.

 

Is there any way to not allow them to click OK if they didn't enter using the correct format?

 

TIA.
