VZ Regulator

An Expression Engine fieldtype that allows for regular expression validation of text inputs. An optional tooltip can be displayed when input does not match the pattern.

Take a look at HTML5Pattern for a library of validation expressions you can use. If you need to create your own pattern, I recommend the HiFi RegExp Tool for quick and easy regular expression testing.


Compatible with Safecracker, Grid, Matrix, and Low Variables

Requires EE >= 2.6 and the jQuery module. Formatting hints will not be displayed in IE 7 and below.


Download and unzip the extension. Upload the vz_regulator folder to /system/expressionengine/third_party. Enable it from the Fieldtypes control panel page.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
