Currently there is no way to specify general text patterns.

I see that similar requests have already been marked as closed since it is easy to create a helper class that does all kinds of formatting. But a novice using iReport expects to be able to do simple string masks and they probably spend a lot of time trying to figure out why they cant use the 'pattern' property to format a phone number.

In addition to the current pattern categories of number,date,time,currency,percentage,scientific.... it would be nice to have a 'Text' or 'String' or 'Mask' category that formats the string by hooking into javax.swing.text.MaskFormatter
