Digit Restrictions

Susana,

We have a specific data-type in CommCare’s form builder called “Phone
Number/Numeric ID” which you might find helpful. It restricts the users to
typing numbers, but retains things like leading 0’s.

There’s also a string-length function which you could use which will tell
you how long a question’s answer is,

string-length(.) = 4 or string-length(.) = 6 would be able to test whether
the input was of the lengths you are looking for.

Hello,
I am looking to put in place a restriction condition for one integer
question. I want the interviewer to only be able to enter EITHER a 4-digit
number OR a 6-digit number. As of right now, I only have the following
4-digit restriction regex(.,’^[:digit:]{4}$’). How do I add the 6-digit
restriction as well?

Thank you,
Susana

I haven’t tried, but you can try this regex that adds an optional 2 digits group at the end:

regex(.,’^[:digit:]{4}([:digit:]{4})?$’)
