Eventtype Definition: Search by Field Value length

Similarly, I want to make a group/eventtype of events from a certain sourcetype where the LOGINID values are all 12 characters long. I can get these events out using pipes and regexes, but then eventtypes does not accept search queries with pipes. Is there a way to extract the LOGINID length as a seperate field that I can use to search on in my eventtype query?

As in http://answers.splunk.com/questions/10145/case-sensitivity-in-eventtype-searches/10197#10197, you should be able to coerce your regex to extract fields that are only of a certain length.
