The SwitchSymbolFormatter Class is used for creating custom Formatters.

SwitchSymbolFormatter in Flex4:

The SwitchSymbolFormatter Class is used for creating custom Formatters. This Class is used for replacing placeholder characters in a string with another number string. In this example we useed SocialSecurityNumber for formatting. The format string is ###-##-#### and the input string is a nine digit number such as 345678934. After formatting the number will be shown like 345-67-8934. If an error occurs this error will be shown by the error property. The error property has two types of error values: Invalid value, Invalid format.
It is created by the action script. It has no component.

Example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<s:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"

xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark"

xmlns:mx="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx"

minWidth="955" minHeight="600" xmlns:local="*">

<fx:Script>

<![CDATA[

import mx.formatters.SwitchSymbolFormatter;

import mx.events.ValidationResultEvent;

private var result:ValidationResultEvent;

private function checkFormat():void

{

result = scValidator.validate();

if (result.type==ValidationResultEvent.VALID) {

var temp:SwitchSymbolFormatter=new SwitchSymbolFormatter('#');

numlbl.text =temp.formatValue("###-##-####", numtxt.text);

}

else {

numlbl.text= "Invalid Number";

}

}
