jQuery Masked input plugin formatting

Hi experts,

I'm using the jQuery Masked input plugin.

I have this example i created for a social security number format. It works fine.  


Is there a way to revise this to not allow the user to type all zeros?

I don't want to allow the user to type all zeros like this:

You can prevent the user from entering "ANY" zeros but the end result being all zeros would be a validation issue. For that I'd use jQuery Validator.

However, you can easily prevent the first character from being a zero and still make the control usable. I updated your jsFiddle to demonstrate.


Since no social security number would ever start with a zero this would work.
