        Enter any number of the digits one or two.
        You entered <value expr="myfield"/>.
        You entered a number that does not match one or two.
        You did not enter anything.


From this example, the user has 7 seconds to enter a string of ones or twos. If the user does not enter anything after 7 seconds, a noinput event is generated. After the first DTMF input is entered, the user has up to 7 seconds to enter more digits. Once 7 seconds has passed after the digits have been entered, the platform will act upon the DTMF inputs that were entered.
