I have been tring to create a text field (SPFieldText) with a custom format XX-XXXX-XXXX and add a check (control) so that when you add a dokument with same property but different format to a document library. Sharepoint would alert the user that the property has wrong format. Is it possible? thanks.


The MSDN custom field type walkthrough covers a scenario very similar to your own.


You will need to create a custom Text field which derives from SPFieldText and override the GetValidatedString method. Her you can put your logic to check if the text entered adheres to the format or not.
