||This option is set by default. Zone values are not validated.
Note: The resulting RRT will contain an empty
string, if the zone contains unrecognizable characters; if the zone does not contain
anything, then there will be no value
passed to the resulting RRT.
||This option says that the zone must contain some valid value depending on zone type.
If no valid value is found in the
zone, it is identified as empty.
Note: If the zone does not contain anything or its content is unrecognizable, then
there will be no value passed to the resulting RRT.
||This option allows using wild cards to validate those zone values which satisfy the
||any value of any length
||any single character
||any single alphabetic character
||any single numeric character
||any letter or a number
If you want symbols such as *?\ to be interpreted as characters (not as wild cards),
use the slash as the
escape character: \*, \?, \[, \], \\.
For example, to interpret the symbols in the string [a*b]*c as literal characters,
use the following expression: \[a\*b\]\*c.
|Matches regular expression
||This option says that the zone value must match a regular expression. All standard
operations are allowed: ., *, +, |, ,
^, $ ? and grouping with ().
a where a is any symbol excluding symbols (|).*+^$\?
For example: f is character "f”; 5 is character "5”.
a where a is any symbol including (|).*+^$\?
To represent any symbol "as is”, precede it with a the backslash character. You can
use the backslash and
an escape character to interpret special characters literally, including characters
CharSet. To include the backslash character ( \ ) as a literal character, prefix it
with the backslash ( \\ ).
For example: \* means character "*” and \a means character
Any single symbol.
For example: expression 11.5 corresponds to such combinations of characters as
"1135”, "11f5”, "11_5”.
Any regular expression RegExp.
For instance, 112 represents sequence "112”, which can be found inside a string
(not the whole string only!).
Any one of expressions RegExp1 or RegExp2
For example, expression 1|3 validates any of symbols "1” or "3”.
Note: The concatenation has priority in comparison with alternation construct. This means
combination 12.5|78 corresponds not to "12(any number)(then 5 or 7)8", but it
corresponds to "(12(any number)5) or (78)". So, the representations of this example
can be: "1235",
Regular expression RegExp repeated one or more times.
Use this expression to find sequences of desired characters
For example, (1|3)+ will find expressions (1|3), (1|3)(1|3).
||Regular expression RegExp repeated zero or more times.
||Regular expression RegExp repeated zero or one time.
Sequence of two expressions: RegExp1 then RegExp2.
For example, (1|3)(11.5) corresponds to such combinations as "11175”, "311t5”.
Beginning of string.
Use this symbol to find strings which begin with predefined regular expression. The
must follow ^ sign.
End of string.
Use this symbol to find strings which end with predefined regular expression. The
desired expression must
precede $ sign. Expression ^RegExp$ corresponds to the whole string only.
Expression 5$ corresponds to all strings which end with "5”;
(1|3)$ — All strings which end with "1” or "3”;
^(a|c)..123.$ represents whole strings which begin with "a” or "c” then have
any two characters, then sequence "123” and end with any character: "age123y”, "cat1234”.
Any single symbol belonging to a character set CharSet.
The CharSet is specified as a character string and includes all symbols of the string.
The order of characters doesn't matter. A "-” sign inside of the CharSet has a special
meaning and is used to represent a characters interval.
For example, expression [12a-e34] means the same as [12abcde34], it stands for any
character "1”, "2”, "3”, "4”, "a”, "b”, "c”, "d” or "e”.
Any symbol not belonging to manifold CharSet.
For example, [^12a-e34] means any character excluding "1”, "2”, "3”, "4”, "a”,
"b”, "c”, "d” and "e”.
Note: Other symbols inside brackets are considered as characters but not special symbols.
instance, [$] is not a symbol of end of string but it is a character "$”. Symbol ^
must stand right after
"[", otherwise it means just a character "^”.
|Validated by external script
||Zones will be verified by the use of the defined VB script. Input the path to the
script in the Script file
name field or browse the script. The script receives the following data at input:
If the zone is validated, it returns value "TRUE" or "YES" for string variable RRV.
If validation fails, the script
returns "FALSE" for RRV. Example of the validation script:
- sValue — The zone value with line feed
- sTrimmedValue — The zone value without line feed
- sFileName — Input file name
- nPageNumber — Page number
val = sValue
fn = sFileName
num = nPageNum
Value = "Vinci" then
RRV = "TRUE"
RRV = "FALSE"
||This option says that the zone value must contain the specified text. If the text
is not found in the zone, it is
identified as empty.
