Using Regular expressions (REGEX) in FlexiCapture.

is there a method to use regular expressions or similar pattern matching when defining a flexi layout in flexicapture?

for example i know a text on an invoice will always be X: or X*:

this would be easy and more accurate if i could figure out how to use regex or similar, any ideas?

    Hello,

    Regular expression can be used in Character String element as an alternative to specifying alphabets and their portions. Expression can be specified on "Character String" tab of element properties, just above box for specifying alphabets. Syntax of regular expressions is described at FLS Help -> Elements -> Element Properties -> Character String -> Regular expression alphabet. Did I misunderstand something in your question?

    Yes, this functionality exists even in FlexiLayout Studio 8.0 and in FlexiCapture Studio 1.5
