I have done this in IE but unable to in firefox.

So can someone generate a simple piece of code using javascript that will allow me to PHYSICALLY ONLY enter Numbers\Letters\Etc. Not a message popping up once the form is submitted stating that I have numbers where letters should be etc. Just so that I am physically unable to enter text or numbers into the text field.

Thanks, Regards X

Hi OmniX!

What do you want exactly? Is it that you want to validate the field with only text or with only number? If it is clear to me than only I will try or may be in a position to solve your problem.


I have several fields that I want only TEXT, only NUMBERS and only SPECIAL CHARACTERS (specific ones).

Javascript I want is that it wont let you PHYSICALLY input the wrong chracters.

Eg. Letters only then no numbers, etc.

I was able to do this in IE but unable to in FF.

I would like a solution for FF.

Understand what I mean now? Thanks


just so you know if you use javascript for this people can still paste things into the textbox, unless you disable ctrl+v and right clicking on the text box ;)


Ya I know the problem I had in IE.

Well you got any other ideas than not to use javascript?

Or any ideas how to disable crtl+v?
(Dont need to disable right click to paste code into a cell, I think)
I asked this before and I got no answers a while back :(

Main question how to validate text field in FF!!


Ya I've an idea. Do 1 think. In the INPUT tag use READONLY.

It will work, actually it works in my case.

If urproblem is solved, Please mark it solved
