Field validations play a crucial role in ensuring data integrity and accuracy in your applications. With WizyVision's field validation feature, you can define rules and requirements for specific fields, ensuring that users enter valid and consistent information. Currently, field validations are available for Text and Paragraph fields, empowering you to enforce data quality standards and enhance the reliability of your captured data.
Available Field Validations
WizyVision offers a range of pre-defined field validations that you can apply to your Text and Paragraph fields. These validations include:
- IMEI 15-Digits: Validates if the entered value is a valid 15-digit IMEI number, commonly used for identifying mobile devices.
- UPC 12-Digits: Ensures that the entered value conforms to the Universal Product Code (UPC) standard, which consists of a 12-digit numeric code widely used in product identification.
- EAN 13-Digits: Validates if the entered value complies with the European Article Number (EAN) standard, a 13-digit barcode system used for product identification globally.
- GTIN 14-Digits: Verifies if the entered value adheres to the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) standard, a unique identifier assigned to products in the supply chain.
- Contains: Checks if the entered value contains a specific substring or set of characters, allowing you to ensure certain keywords or patterns are present in the input.
- Doesn't contain: Verifies that the entered value does not contain a specified substring or set of characters, enabling you to exclude certain keywords or patterns from the input.
- Length: Validates the length of the entered value against defined minimum and maximum limits, ensuring the input falls within the specified range.
- Regular Expression: Allows you to define a custom regular expression pattern to validate the entered value, giving you the flexibility to enforce complex validation rules. For more information on using regular expressions, refer to the dedicated article in the WizyVision Knowledge Base.
Applying Field Validations
To apply field validations to your Text or Paragraph fields, simply select the desired validation type from the available options in the field properties. You can customize the validation parameters, such as minimum and maximum length or the specific substring to check for, based on your specific requirements. When users input data in the validated fields, WizyVision will automatically verify if the entered value meets the defined validation criteria.
Field validations provide several key benefits, including:
- Improved Data Accuracy: By enforcing validation rules, you can minimize the likelihood of incorrect or inconsistent data entry, ensuring a higher level of data accuracy.
- Enhanced Data Integrity: Validations help maintain the integrity of your data by ensuring that it meets predefined standards and requirements, preventing data corruption or discrepancies.
- Streamlined Workflows: By setting up field validations, you can guide users to enter data in the correct format or within specific criteria, streamlining the data capture process and reducing errors.
- Data Consistency: Field validations help enforce consistent data formats and structures, promoting uniformity across your applications and facilitating data analysis and reporting.
With WizyVision's field validation feature, you can enhance the reliability and integrity of your captured data. By applying pre-defined validations or creating custom validation rules, you can enforce data quality standards and streamline your workflows. Take advantage of this powerful feature to ensure accurate and consistent data capture in your applications.
