Experts,

In my code shown below I need to only allow A-Z, 0-9, a dash, a space or an apostrophe.  Any ideas?
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $('#<%= Let1.ClientID %>').keyup(function (event) {
                var c = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode);
                var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/);

                if (isWordcharacter) {
                    $('#<%= Let2.ClientID %>').focus();
                    $('#<%= Let2.ClientID %>').select();
                }

            });
            $('#<%= Let2.ClientID %>').keyup(function (event) {
                var c = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode);
                var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/);

                if (isWordcharacter) {
                    $('#<%= Let3.ClientID %>').focus();
                    $('#<%= Let3.ClientID %>').select();
                }
            });
            $('#<%= Let3.ClientID %>').keyup(function (event) {
                var c = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode);
                var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/);

                if (isWordcharacter) {
                    $('#<%= Let4.ClientID %>').focus();
                    $('#<%= Let4.ClientID %>').select();
                }
            });
            $('#<%= Let4.ClientID %>').keyup(function (event) {
                var c = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode);
                var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/);

                if (isWordcharacter) {
                    $('#<%= Let5.ClientID %>').focus();
                    $('#<%= Let5.ClientID %>').select();
                }
            });
            $('#<%= Let5.ClientID %>').keyup(function (event) {
                var c = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode);
                var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/);

                if (isWordcharacter) {
                    $('#<%= Let6.ClientID %>').focus();
                    $('#<%= Let6.ClientID %>').select();
                }
            });
            $('#<%= Let6.ClientID %>').keyup(function (event) {
                var c = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode);
                var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/);

                if (isWordcharacter) {
                    $('#<%= Let7.ClientID %>').focus();
                    $('#<%= Let7.ClientID %>').select();
                }
            });
            $('#<%= Let7.ClientID %>').keyup(function (event) {
                var c = String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode);
                var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/);

                if (isWordcharacter) {
                    $('#<%= btnView.ClientID %>').focus();
                }
            });
        });
    </script>

leakim971,

I replaced my line of code -var isWordcharacter = c.match(/\w/); - with your line of code - var isWordcharacter = /[a-z\d\-\s']/i.test( c );  - and I can still type anything in the textbox.

jagssidurala,

The MaskedEditValidator is interfering with the javascript and I can not run the validator.

replace all your code by :

$('#<%= Let1.ClientID %>,#<%= Let2.ClientID %>,#<%= Let3.ClientID %>,#<%= Let4.ClientID %>,#<%= Let5.ClientID %>,#<%= Let6.ClientID %>,#<%= Let7.ClientID %>').keyup(function() {
    $(this).val( $(this).val().replace( /[^a-z\d\-\s']/gi, "") );
});

leakim971,

When I replaced my code with yours, I lost all functionality of when I enter a single character it goes to the next field and when I tab back it highlights the text in the textbox.
