You can use javascript for client side validation and php for server side

<script>
            function validate(){
    x=document.myForm.myInput.value;

    if (x >=10)

    {
        alert("Contact must be 10 digit")
        return true

    }

    else if(isNaN(x))

    {
        alert("Contact cant be alphabet")
        return false
    }
    else

    {
        alert("Contact is smaller than required")
        return false
    }

}
    </script>

Open in new window


In php
if (!is_numeric($fieldname))
{
    echo 'Invalid Contact Number.';
}

Open in new window

You can add more code for 10 digit

My bad, I gave you the wrong link...

http://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-maker/

They have demos of how to use it and a user manual. Even a forum if you get stuck.

Check the demo and see if this is suitable for your needs. If this isn't right for you have a look through the other plugins.

I cant link the plugin to the my site. Because, there is no such option for the custom layout.

Here is the (current) standard teaching example for validation of USA telephone numbers.  You may be able to tailor this for your needs.

<?php // RAY_phone_numbers.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// A FUNCTION TO VALIDATE A USA PHONE NUMBER AND RETURN A NORMALIZED STRING
// MAN PAGE: http://discuss.fogcreek.com/joelonsoftware3/default.asp?cmd=show&ixPost=102667&ixReplies=15
// MAN PAGE: http://www.nanpa.com/number_resource_info/index.html
function strtophone($phone, $format=FALSE, $letters=FALSE, $dlm='-')
{
    if ($letters)
    {
        // TURN INPUT LIKE 1-800-BIG-DOGS
        // INTO INPUT LIKE 1-800-244-3647
        $phone = strtoupper($phone);
        if (preg_match('/[A-Z]/', $phone))
        {
            $phone = strtr
            ( $phone
            , 'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'
            , '22233344455566677778889999'
            )
            ;
        }
    }

    // DISCARD NON-NUMERIC CHARACTERS
    $phone = preg_replace('/[^0-9]/', NULL, $phone);

    // DISCARD A LEADING '1' FROM NUMBERS ENTERED LIKE 1-800-555-1212
    if (substr($phone,0,1) == '1') $phone = substr($phone,1);

    // IF LESS THAN TEN DIGITS, IT IS INVALID
    if (strlen($phone) < 10) return FALSE;

    // IF IT STARTS WITH '0' OR '1' IT IS INVALID, SECOND DIGIT CANNOT BE '9' (YET)
    if (substr($phone,0,1) == '0') return FALSE;
    if (substr($phone,0,1) == '1') return FALSE;
    if (substr($phone,1,1) == '9') return FALSE;

    // ISOLATE THE COMPONENTS OF THE PHONE NUMBER
    $ac = substr($phone,0,3); // AREA
    $ex = substr($phone,3,3); // EXCHANGE
    $nm = substr($phone,6,4); // NUMBER
    $xt = substr($phone,10);  // EXTENSION

    // ADD OTHER TESTS HERE AS MAY BE NEEDED - THESE ARE FOR LOCAL APPS
    if ($ac == '900') return FALSE;
    if ($ac == '976') return FALSE;
    if ($ex == '555') return FALSE;

    // IF NOT FORMATTED
    if (!$format) return $phone;

    // STANDARDIZE THE PRINTABLE FORMAT OF THE PHONE NUMBER LIKE 212-555-1212-1234
    $formatted_phone = $ac . $dlm . $ex . $dlm . $nm;
    if ($xt != '') $formatted_phone .= $dlm . $xt;
    return $formatted_phone;
}



// DEMONSTRATION OF THE FUNCTION IN ACTION.
if (!empty($_GET["p"]))
{
    // VALIDATE PHONE USING FUNCTION ABOVE
    if (!$phone = strtophone($_GET["p"], TRUE))
    {
        // FUNCTION RETURNS FALSE IF PHONE NUMBER IS UNUSABLE
        echo "BOGUS: {$_GET["p"]} ";
    }
    else
    {
        // SHOW THE FORMATTED PHONE
        echo "VALID: {$_GET["p"]} == $phone";
    }
}


// PUT UP A FORM TO TEST PHONE NUMBERS
function ph($p)
{
    echo "<br/><a href=\"{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?p=" . urlencode($p) . "\">$p</a>" . PHP_EOL;
}
$form = <<<EOD
<form>
ENTER A PHONE NUMBER:
<input name="p" /><br/>
<input type="submit" />
</form>
TRY SOME OF THESE (CLICK OR COPY AND PASTE):
EOD;
echo $form;
ph('1-800-5551212');
ph('202-537-7560');
ph('202 537 7560');
ph('1-202-537-7560');
ph('(202) 537-7560');
ph('1.202.537.7560');
ph('123456789');
ph('703-356-5300 x2048');
ph('(212) 555-1212');
ph('1 + (212) 555-1212');
ph('1 (292) 226-7000');
