I need it to permit all the numbers & right now it is only permitting 1,5,8,9..

Won't _root.phone_txt.restrict="1589" do the opposite of what I need ?

That also stops the dash, which inhibits the validator from working correctly.
The validator needs the dash, right ?

I don't know what else to check.

I make a new text field from scratch - just to double check.
