How can I create a regular expression custom field?

As well as Boris's question, I'd also point out that the answer is probably going to be "by writing a custom field that you can't install in OnDemand"

Good point! I didn't notice that the question has Ondemand tag :)

Thanks, so I can't use a custom regex field with OnDemand? I want to auto-create a link to a URL when only given part of it.

No. There are a couple of regex validator plugins out there (i.e. they won't let the user enter stuff that doesn't match a regex), but as I mentioned, they're not for OnDemand, you can't install them.

Also, you're not asking for a regex field, you're asking for something with auto-guess/correct. I'm afraid the same answer applies really (Except that I'm not aware of any plugins that might provide that function)

How do you plan to use this regex ? What you'll match with it ? Give some context please.
