How do control characters get entered in textbox
Posted on 2004-08-20
I support an online credit card payment system. Every once in a while the data the customer enters into a textbox (different ones) has control characters at the end of the text data. Specifically newline carriage return (Hex 0D0A or Hex 0D0A0D0A). I have not been able to input these characters using IE 6.0 on XP Pro or using IE 6.0 on Win 2000 server. Since I can't input them I can't test to see if I have successfully stripped them before using the data.
Does anyone know how the customer is entering these control characters? Thanks.
