Format (xxx) xxx-xxxx

- (BOOL)textField:(UITextField *)textField shouldChangeCharactersInRange:(NSRange)range replacementString:(NSString *)string
{
    int length = (int)[self getLength:textField.text];
    //NSLog(@"Length  =  %d ",length);

    if(length == 10)
    {
        if(range.length == 0)
            return NO;
    }

    if(length == 3)
    {
        NSString *num = [self formatNumber:textField.text];
        textField.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"(%@) ",num];

        if(range.length > 0)
            textField.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[num substringToIndex:3]];
    }
    else if(length == 6)
    {
        NSString *num = [self formatNumber:textField.text];
        //NSLog(@"%@",[num  substringToIndex:3]);
        //NSLog(@"%@",[num substringFromIndex:3]);
        textField.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"(%@) %@-",[num  substringToIndex:3],[num substringFromIndex:3]];

        if(range.length > 0)
            textField.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"(%@) %@",[num substringToIndex:3],[num substringFromIndex:3]];
    }

    return YES;
}

- (NSString *)formatNumber:(NSString *)mobileNumber
{
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"(" withString:@""];
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@")" withString:@""];
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@" " withString:@""];
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"-" withString:@""];
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"+" withString:@""];

    NSLog(@"%@", mobileNumber);

    int length = (int)[mobileNumber length];
    if(length > 10)
    {
        mobileNumber = [mobileNumber substringFromIndex: length-10];
        NSLog(@"%@", mobileNumber);

    }

    return mobileNumber;
}

- (int)getLength:(NSString *)mobileNumber
{
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"(" withString:@""];
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@")" withString:@""];

    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"-" withString:@""];
    mobileNumber = [mobileNumber stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"+" withString:@""];

    int length = (int)[mobileNumber length];

    return length;
