How To Disable The Enter Key From A Text Area?



Need help in disabling the Enter Key from a  text area in a Submission Form and an Update Form.  Since I later on use that parameter to pass it on to another form and if the user used the Enter key, this passing of parameters results in an error.  


This is what I have on the header of the submission form but still is not working:


<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function stopRKey(evt) {
var evt  = (evt) ? evt : ((event) ? event : null);
var node = (evt.target) ? evt.target : ((evt.srcElement) ? evt.srcElement : null);
if ((evt.keyCode == 13) && (node.type=="text")) { return false; }
document.onkeypress = stopRKey;
The field I want to prevent is named as: "[@Status_trial]"
I will greatly appreciate the Help!

As I understand you would like to disable a field if that is the case then use the following script in the footer of the page:

function f_disable(){
document.getElementById('InsertRecordStatus_trial').disabled= 'true';

change InsertRecordStatus_trial to EditRecordStatus_trial for update form

If I understand correctly, you don't need to disable the Enter Key, you need to remove paragraphs from the parameter.

In this case you can use code like


<script language="JavaScript">

function textReplace()


var text = document.getElementById("ID").value;

text = text.replace(/\n/g, " ");


document.getElementById("ID").value = text;





Your "ID" for Submission Form will be, probably, "InsertRecordStatus_trial" and for Update Form "EditRecordStatus_trial"


When a user clicks the Submit button, paragraphs are removed from the entered text and the parameter is passed without paragraphs.
