- Name - only characters & space
- Username - only lowercase characters & numbers
- Character Limit - default is set to a maximum of 100 characters

After selecting any predefined pattern, you can customize those too.
For each pattern, the user can set
Flag to control how the regex pattern will work for the text field.
g( global)- With this flag, the search looks for all matches, without it – only the first match is returned.
i (case-insensitive)- With this flag, the search is case-insensitive: no difference between A and a.
s(single line)- Enables “dot all” mode, which allows a dot . to match newline character \n.
m (multi line)- Multiline mode.
