How to count characters of a field in Nintex form

I have a Nintex form in SP 2016. Wondering if there is a built in function that will tell me the occurrence of character in a control.


Example:

I have a calculated field that has "#" symbol(s). I want to know how many symbols exists in that field. Based on that I shall perform some validation.

Note: I cannot use workflows to do the validation. This is because I want the form to warn me before I execute a workflow (users clicks on submit button) or leave the form.

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Re: How to count characters of a field in Nintex form

Are you using a Classic Form or a Responsive Form?

Can you please post some example text like the kind you need to check? 

Are you *only* checking for the "#" character or will you be searching for various characters depending on the situation? 

 

What is a "Valid" amount of "#"s?
