Class Regexp

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class Regexp
    extends AbstractValidator<java.util.regex.Pattern,​java.lang.String>
    Enforces that the input matches a provided regular expression. Starting in 5.4, this always writes the pattern and title attribute, even when client validation is not enabled. The title attribute is used specially by modern browsers, in concert with pattern.
