  4. In the Testing group, enter a test string into the Simple input text field and click Validate Valid Field Result icon.

    A message appears below the Validate button with the test results.

  5. Modify the validation method properties until you are satisfied with the test results.
  6. Click Close to save the validation method properties.
  7. Optionally, click OK to close the Project Settings window.
  8. Save the changes to your project.
