Need help with field input validation for a Phone field that the user wants to be either US or International.
For example if a choice of Domestic is made then the format must validate to 199.999.9999 or if International then no validation is necessary.

How can I input validate the field conditionally?

I am trying to check that the user formatted properly and if not, return a prompt telling them what format it should be and not save anything until correct. I can do that with our Javascript but I need it to be conditional to the US or Int'l drop-down choice they make.  For example, if dropdown choice is US then YES validate the format to be 199.999.9999 or if ddropdown choice is Int'l then no validation necessary (accept anything).
thanks

I assume it is for Notes client side and not for web.
In the InputTRansalation of the Phone field:
@If(ChoiceField<>"US";@Return(@Success);"");
@If(@Trim(@Length(FieldName))<>10 or (@Trim(@Length(FieldName))<>12;@Return(@Failure("Please enter a vaild phone number");@Success);
phone := @Trim(Field Name);
phonestripped :=@Trim(@Implode(@Explode(@LowerCase(phone); "."); ""));
@If(@Length(phonestripped) = 10; "(" + @Left(phonestripped; 3) + ") " +
@Right(@Left(phonestripped; 6); 3) + "." + @Right(phonestripped; 4); phone)
the above code does auto splits and appends "."

Play with the above code, you can achieve the result.
