[FYI] How to normalize inputs before submission



This is solution can be used for a specific use case where the users inputs character with diacritical marks in them and you would like to remove or "normalize" those characters. This solution can be useful to have more user-friendly search criteria.

What you would need to do is to put a header & footer on your submission page and put the following code in the footer. Don't forget to disable the HTML editor on the Advanced tab before pasting the code below.


document.getElementsByName('Submit')[0].unsafe = function(){

var str = document.getElementById('InsertRecordFIELD_NAME').value;
document.getElementById('InsertRecordFirst_Name').value = str.normalize("NFD").replace(/[\u0300-\u036f]/g, "");

var str = document.getElementById('InsertRecordFIELD_NAME').value;
document.getElementById('InsertRecordLast_Name').value = str.normalize("NFD").replace(/[\u0300-\u036f]/g, "");

The code will run when the user hovers their mouse on the submit button. See the screenshots below for reference.
