Perspective phone number entry

I would like to know if anyone has used a transform to add dashes to a phone number when it’s entered? So if the user types 2606093483 it will show as 260-609-3483.

def phone_format(n):                                                                                                                                  
	return format(int(n[:-1]), ",").replace(",", "-") + n[-1]
print phone_format('5551212') 
print phone_format('8005551212')



That works if it is a parameter, but not when I type it in.

Then you will need another property to monitor, format, and write it back. (3.3 KB)

script on props.text:

	def phone_format(n):                                                                                                                                  
		return format(int(n[:-1]), ",").replace(",", "-") + n[-1]
	value = str(currentValue.value)
	if '-' not in value and len(value) >= 7:
		self.custom.formattedText = phone_format(str(currentValue.value))

script on custom.formattedText:

	if currentValue.value != self.props.text:
		self.props.text = currentValue.value
