Tomahawk validateRegExpr tag

        

This tag is used to validate a string entered by the user. If we want the user to enter a specific pattern of string then we can set the pattern for that component. For example, we have an input field and we want the user to enter a number that consists of any number with "1" in the beginning but only one "2" at the last. So for this Tomahawk provides a tag validateRegExpr which has pattern attribute that is used to specify the pattern to be followed by the user to input the string in the box. If the entered value is not following the pattern then we can display the message of our interest by using "message" attribute.
