    To format a phone field like that, you have two options: force the user to enter it like that, or use custom code to format the value that the user enters.

    To change the layout of the forms, you can use one of the other templates that are available, but these are simply frameworks, the final layout of your forms is something you will need to adjust using your own CSS rules.

    How do you setup the default format? If I knew the code to use, I don’t know where to place the code….

    What do you mean by “default format”? For a phone field like that, you can really only us a “text line” field, there is no formatting, just a line of text.

    If you’re asking about how to force the user to type the number in in a specific format, you need to use a regex which will not validate the field until the format is correct. For example, you could use a regex format like this:

    /^\([0-9]{3}\) [0-9]{3}-[0-9]{4}$/
