Hey there,

I assume the phone no validation trims your input.

I'd start here and look at the phone number regex to see why your phone no doesn't pass; ... tility.php

Hi there,

Would this be lines 43 and 44? I'm inputting UK numbers and they are converted to US format. Out numbers are 11 digits beginning with 0. As with the above poster, the numbers I input change to a xxx-xxx-xxxx format.

without learning PCRE, I plugged different nos in and this doesn't reformat the phone number. I'm also in the UK. I'll need to revisit at some point and do it properly, but if you want an ugly hack, here's the section I changed;
Code: Select all
class StringUtility
    const matchPHSeparator    = '[\s\/.-]*';                            /* PCRE */
    const matchPHCountryCode  = '[(]?[+]?\d{0,3}[)]?';                  /* PCRE */
    const matchPHECountryCode = '[(]?[+]?(?P<countryCode>\d{0,3})[)]?'; /* PCRE */
    const matchPHAreaCode     = '[(]?[2-9]{1}\d{2}[)]?';                /* PCRE */
    const matchPHEAreaCode    = '[(]?(?P<areaCode>[2-9]{1}\d{2})[)]?';  /* PCRE */
    const matchPHExchange     = '\d{4}';                                /* PCRE */
    const matchPHEExchange    = '(?P<exchange>\d{4})';                  /* PCRE */
    const matchPHNumber       = '\d{4}';                                /* PCRE */
    const matchPHENumber      = '(?P<number>\d{4})';                    /* PCRE */

    const matchPHExtension  = '([(]?(?:e?xt?(?:ension|)|#|[*]|)[)]?[\s\/.-]*\d{1,6}[)]?)?';                /* PCRE */
    const matchPHEExtension = '([(]?(?:e?xt?(?:ension|)|#|[*]|)[)]?[\s\/.-]*(?P<extension>\d{1,6})[)]?)?'; /* PCRE */
..otherwise if you want it 'correctly formatted for UK' then you can check out the UK compatible PCRE which is listed here ... eSupport=1
