Field Masks

A Field Mask is a ColdFusion script that changes the way text is displayed. For example, a mask might use a database behind the scenes to change an employee ID to the employee's name.

This dialog lets you review, edit, add, and delete Field Masks that are associated with a Field Type.

Click the edit icon to modify an existing field mask. The Edit Field Mask dialog displays. See Add Field Mask for information on completing this dialog.

For more information on creating Feld masks, please refer to the Field Masks & Custom Field Types section in the CommonSpot Developer's Guide.
