Disable A Form For Wrong Entry

Recommended Posts

Hi bookish,


Can you use drop-down lists instead of input fields?

You can use Lookup tables with variants of special diets and special room requests.



You can look for some words in the field with the following code:

function check_text()
var text_for_checking = document.getElementById("InsertRecordtext").value;
var wrong_answer = false;
if (text_for_checking.search("room")!=-1) {wrong_answer = true};
if (text_for_checking.search("floor")!=-1) {wrong_answer = true};
if (wrong_answer)
      alert("Please specify your diet requirement.");
      return false;

Please, enter the name of your field instead of text in the 

var text_for_checking = document.getElementById("InsertRecordtext").value;


You can add as many words as you wish, just copy the line

if (text_for_checking.search("room")!=-1) {wrong_answer = true};

and enter your word instead of "room".


To use a Java Script code, please add a Header&Footer element, select the Footer element, then click the Source button, and then enter a code. 
I hope it helps.
