currently i am working on a webpage designing project. I have to include CAPTCHA in my webpage. My doubt is , usually in text boxes , users will be able to get already entered values by just pressing the arrow key. In the case of CAPTCHA this must be disabled( in text box were I receive the user input for validation) How will I make this property set in a text box?? Any kind of suggestion would be of great help.

Thanks in advance

For disabling the up and down arrow keys try this:

<script type="text/javascript">
document.onkeydown=function(){return event.keyCode==38 || event.keyCode==40 ? false : true;}


document.getElementById(id).onkeydown=function(){return event.keyCode==38 || event.keyCode==40 ? false : true;}

where id is the id of your form

Thank u.. I'll try this out :)

I don't have the code of your Captcha form but I think this should work:

<form name="forma">
<input type="submit" value="submit">
<input type="text" name="textform" autocomplete="off">

Thanks!!! It worked!!!! :) yippiieee.........
