                                FilteringTextInputFormatter.allow(
                                  RegExp(r'[0-9]'),
                                ),
                                FilteringTextInputFormatter.deny(
                                  RegExp(
                                      r'^0+'), //users can't type 0 at 1st position
                                ),
                              ],
