Validating forms and fields in a PDF

I would like to validate forms and fields in  PDF, but not using the traditional and already-supplied formats (SS, phone number, zip code, etc).

For one, I need to validate that the number string is nine numbers in lenght; no spaces or special characters are allowed.

If focus is taken off the form without that being true, entry into the next field would not be allowed.

I'm assuming I will need a custom validation script for this and that it will most likely require javascript.

First link only provides confirmation that I can use the custom validation script for Adobe forms, and that Livecycle requires a different method.

The second link requires a paid subscription.

If you have any furhter resources you could share, I would be appreciative.

Thanks.
