On my Submission Form DataPage I manage to prevent the user to input a special characters but I also want to prevent my user to input special characters  when they are on my Report DataPage and they are using Inline Insert. Is there a way to achieve this?

Hi Thead,

Yes, it is possible to prevent your user to input special characters using your inline insert. You just need to add Header&Footer on your Configure Search Fields. After that, click your Footer and disabled the HTML Editor, and copy the below codes:

<script type="text/javascript">
document.addEventListener('input', function(event) {

//****CHANGES HERE

var field1= document.getElementById("InlineAddFIELDNAME1");
var field2=  document.getElementById("InlineAddFIELDNAME2");

var array= [field1,field2];

//****END OF CHANGES HERE

for (i=0; i < array.length; i++){

array[i].value=array[i].value.replace(/[^a-zA-Z0-9 ]/g, "");

}


});
</script>

 

Note:

Please update those FIELDNAME1 and FIELDNAME2  to your real  field name where you want to prevent inputting special characters

If you want to add more fields that need to prevent inputting special characters, simply add another variable, say field3, and then add it to the array, as well.

Hello Thead,

Yes it is applicable in Inline Edit, you just need to change your script into this:

<script type="text/javascript">

document.addEventListener("click", function(event){
if(event.srcElement.getAttribute("data-cb-name") == 'InlineEdit'){

document.addEventListener('input', function(e){

//****CHANGES HERE

var field1 = document.querySelector('input[name="InlineEditFIELDNAME1"]');
var field2 = document.querySelector('input[name="InlineEditFIELDNAME2"]');

var InlineArray= [field1,field2];

////****END OF CHANGES HERE

for (i=0; i < InlineArray.length; i++){

InlineArray[i].value=InlineArray[i].value.replace(/[^a-zA-Z0-9 ]/g, "");

}


});

}
});

</script>

 

Hope this helps.
