Hi all

I need to make sure a parameter going through to my method doesn not contains letters.

It's a phone number field so it can contain things like '-' or '+' or '()'etc but it can't contains letters

Can anyone help me write a regex for this

Many thanks

Not sure if this is correct but here goes:

This way if anyone would use a String as parameter i.e. phoneNumber x = new phoneNumber (abc) would result in error as the method requires an integer and not a String.
