A custom value has the following fields that can be edited in the Custom values (Administration) screen.

Tables:

Is Free Text Field

When this box is checked, users may enter free text which is usually restricted using the 'Validation Expression' field (see below).
When the box is left un-checked, a drop-down box appears from which the user must select a custom value.
Example: A Custom value such as 'Pax Boarded Date/Time' may require manual entry in free text.

Input box height (Lines)

This setting may be used to define the default height of the input text box (in rows), when a free-hand text Custom Value is being entered.
The default setting is 1 meaning that the box does not expand. Setting this to above 1, allows for the text box to be expandable. Below example shows the setting at 5 (5 rows).

Display box max height (Lines)

This setting may be used to define the default height of the custom value display box (in rows), when a free-hand text Custom Value is being entered.
The default setting is 5 meaning that the box does will show a maximum of 5 lines on the order screen. Setting this to above 5, allows for the text box to expand on the order screen - this setting is only applicable to the Handlings and Movements screen

In the below example the setting is at 2, meaning that 2 rows of text are visible.

Validation Expression 

A regular expression can be inserted here in order to define the format and content that the user is permitted to add as free text. 
Example: A Custom value such as 'Pax Boarded Date/Time' may require the user to add any given date/time. The regular expression then defines the format in which the date/time can be entered e.g. 17-May-16 23:55, dis-allowing other random formats such as 17/5/16 1155

Validation Error Message

The error message that should display should the user enter the incorrect format as specified by the 'Validation Expression'.
Example: 'Enter the Pax Boarded Date/Time using the format dd-mmm-yy HH:mm only (e.g. 17-May-16 23:55)'
