    I am trying to use a RegularExpressionValidator on a RadMaskedTextBox that is collecting a US Zip Code. I am using the following properties:


    My RegularExpression is ^((\d{5}(-|\s)\d{4})|(\d{5})$

    This fails for 32608 but works for 32608-0000 when using RadMaskedTextBox

    The regular expression works when I do not use a RadMaskedTextBox and fails when I do. I read that the RadInput validates against a stripped version of the Text which should validate both 32608 and 32608-0000.

    Indeed, with the regular expression that you have used, only expressions like 32608-0000  will be accepted. Another alternative would be to use client side script, to add 0's when the user only enters the first five digits. This can be done in the onBlur event on the client. Yet another approach is to change the regular expression, to allow 0-4, or 5 characters in the second sequence:

    <asp:RegularExpressionValidator runat="server" ID="RegularExpressionValidator1" 
     ErrorMessage="Incorrect Format!!!">  

    I hope this information helps.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Murugavel B,

    Presently, the behavior is the same as explained initially. No modifications have been introduced to this functionality. Nevertheless, you can use the regular expression option, or the client script approach to handle the setup.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    The validation expression that Telerik didn't work for me, but this did:
    <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ValidationExpression="^((\d{5}-_{0,4})|(|(\d{5}-\d{4})))$" ID="RegularExpressionValidator6"
        ValidationGroup="vgBrokerApplication" runat="server" Display="None" ErrorMessage=" Invalid zip code "
        ControlToValidate="rmtbZip" />
