Masked input fields

It allows a user to more easily enter fixed width input where you would like them to enter the data in a certain format. You can use it for mobile number, credit card, dates, etc. Usage example:

        label: Phone number
        type: text
        placeholder: 00 0000-0000
            data-mask: 00 0000-0000
            data-mask-reverse: true
            data-mask-clearifnotmatch: true
            data-mask-selectonfocus: true

The data-mask parameter is only required. The default value of data-mask-reverse, data-mask-clearifnotmatch and data-mask-selectonfocus are "false". See the documentation. Before you want to use it, you can activate this feature.


  • Found the plugin useful on 11 Nov, 2019

    Installed this plugin without any problems (build 458, php 7.2) and it is worth every penny! The feature I like most: the options to extend the built in editor like code folding, close tags automatically, autocompletition, code snippets.

    Especially useful in combination with the plugin "Code Editor"! So I don't need an external editor like atom often anymore.

    And there are a lot of other options one can use for convenient handling. Very recommendable indeed!

  • Found the plugin not useful on 26 Nov, 2018

    I just bought this plugin and nothing works, there are many error messages, incomplete coding and I cant even save the settings without an error message displaying! I really dont see any extra features if you use clear cache plugin and backend plus plugin. I kind of feel ripped off and I would like to try and get a refund and remove this paid plugin from my list.

    It gave me what I needed to speed things up! I chose this plugin though because of the plethora of other options it adds to make the user experience easier on clients. It's a winner go grab it!

  • Found the plugin useful on 26 Mar, 2017

    This is a very useful and friendly plugin and I am very much enjoying using it. One of the coolest features is the mouse-right-button-click popup window!

    Great Job!
