Enter Date format only in a custom text field


        Hi Community,


                                 i have a custom text field but can i enter date format


                                 only? How to write a validation rule please help me


                                 with a sample code.




  Thank you in Advance.


If you want only dates in there, any reason why you can't just make it a custom date field instead of a text field ?


You can....  convert dateformat to string.


Foe Eg: you have DATE IN Date__c then 


textfiled = string.valueof(Date__c );
