when you specify options.pattern for prompt it will have no effect, when user click on confirm button (because confirm button won't trigger form submit and therefore validation). The validation will work only, when user presses enter inside input:

    title: "This is a prompt with a date input!",
    pattern: '^[a-z]{2}$',
    callback: function (result) {

Bootbox v4.4.0

@makeusabrew I can confirm this: https://jsfiddle.net/aknwe3ej/. I can work on a patch.

@SleepWalker I'm not jazzed about the changes I've made to get this workaround, but does this fiddle seem to work as expected? https://jsfiddle.net/aknwe3ej/1/

It works, but it is too complicated. What do you think about this approach: https://jsfiddle.net/aknwe3ej/3/?

It would be cool to be able to show custom error messages, but this is completely another feature.

@SleepWalker Closer, but a native prompt doesn't require a non-empty input, so I'm not sure if @makeusabrew would want to go that route. Of course, a native prompt doesn't allow you to apply an input pattern or use alternate input types, soooo...

I've added a new options.required. So it would work as native prompt, till you specify that option.
