Control for Character Entry on Form

Answered - Pending Review

Hi there -

Is there a way to control the characters used for a form? I would like to limit to just roman letters. If this isn't possible, a suggestion for a work around on the grid?

ie. We have event rsvp that are entered in Chinese characters then have to translate later. Would prefer to restrict on the form itself.

Thanks!

    Hi @Leslie Murray

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Unfortunately, as far as I know, it's not possible now, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • "Untested" - Maybe you could use the form logic to check for specific characters and show a message that they can't submit or something similar.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
