Text Entry Field: Type-in YES, Paste-in NO
Posted on 1998-12-30
Is there a way to create a text entry field on an HTML page that will let a user type into it, but not let them cut and paste text from elsewhere into it?
The reason I ask this is that I am trying to set up a game
site. The game rewards speed and I don't want people to
type their answers ahead of time into Wordpad and then just
cut and paste them into the text field.
This might also be useful on chat sites where some users (losers?) have nothing better to do than to cut-and-paste pages of text into the chat window and lock it up until the pasting is completed.
