    Hello Todd!

    Client-Side Templates can be used to format data in the FormView control. You can use the Number format directive to display the Phone number in the desired format. For example:

    {PHONE_NUMBERS:number('=(###) ###-####')}
    Will format a number, such as "1231231234", to appear as "(123) 123-1234":


    In the attached zip file,, you will find the component I created to demonstrate how to format numbers.

    Good luck!
