Hi Guys ,

I'm working on asp.net mvc4 web application and i'm trying to restrict special character from input fields.

for example I have this textbox:

Supplier Contact:  @Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.POTitle, new { @class = "form-control", @placeholder = "Type Name Or Email" })

Open in new window

I would like the restrict like character - /^\s*[a-zA-Z0-9,\s]+\s*$/ when users type in.

I found some jquery something like that:
$(document).ready(function () {
    var charReg = /^\s*[a-zA-Z0-9,\s]+\s*$/;
    $('.keyup-char').keyup(function () {
        var inputVal = $(this).val();

        if (!charReg.test(inputVal)) {
        } else {


Open in new window

but i dont know how to use it in my case.
