Sets the extended data type of a control.
- Page Fields
- Table Fields
The value of this property overrides the value of the table field and it converts a text field into one of the following:
- Phone number
- Email address
- Filter (used on reports)
- Ratio (to monitor the progress bar)
- Masked (displays the value as dots)
This property affects the layout and behavior of controls on a page. Use it to add an icon next to an input field to indicate whether the field relates to a telephone number, email address, or URL. This property applies validation to the field.
