Not sure in which was it wasn't working, but I can see a value like "blah 1 blah" would be allowed. To only allow whitespace before and after the number, you can change the pattern to this:

@"^\s*[0-9]{1,4}\s*$"

I see you appear to have solved it (great!), but I should point out that your accepted solution doesn't allow spaces before or after the number, and requires exactly 4 digits. If you think my solution is better, we can reopen the question...
