I have a customer that wants to collect contact information via an HTML form and add it to a MySQL database.

They want the telephone format to be:
xxx-xxx-xxxx

Not
(xxx)-xxx-xxxx.

Will the following line of code accomplish this?
 if (!ereg("^[0-9)(xX -]{7,20}$",$phone))        
{
        unset($do);
        $message_new = "$phone is not a valid phone number.
                        Please try again.";
        include("login_form.inc");
        exit();
      }

Thanks, April
