The field will now accept input value like 1920, 2010 but would reject other values that fall outside the range.
A regular expression may appear gibberish but they aren’t so difficult to read and understand if you can know the basic rules of the language.
This post covers some exmples of field validation and object validation using regular expression patterns to catch illegal entry by the user.
END You can also use regular expressions to validate names at data entry time within your application, ensuring that only valid name characters are entered: if not regexp_like (first_name, '^[a-z A-Z .''-] $') or not regexp_like (middle_name, '^[a-z A-Z .''-] $') or not regexp_like (last_name, '^[a-z A-Z .''-] $') then dbms_output.put_line('Invalid characters in names.

The above examples are starting points for creating both field and object validations in application composer.
From the above table let's take two examples and apply them in application composer.
When you are expecting dozens, or even hundreds, of responses in your Google Forms, it is always a good idea to have some rules in place and respondents data should be matched against these rules even before they submit the form.
For instance, if your form is asking for a person’s year of birth, they should only be allowed to enter a number between 19.URL encoded) is decoded by rails before passing the string to your model to validate.Lets say we want to validate the string as a username for our app.A username is 5 characters long and consists only of lowercase letters. The shorter string was rejected as we wanted it to be.Now, what happens if we test a string with a newline character in it? As it turns out, this is exactly what we've asked the regex to match, but we didn't want this behaviour. someone can have a username with a newline in it." For starters this will probably display weirdly anywhere you use their username, but more importantly it opens your application to an injection attack.They can login as your admin account and do what they want.
