      Stopping unwanted carriage returns in a field.

      Post

      Been trying my two little games out with some of my students, one problem I've come across is rather than clicking on a next button, they sometimes hit return several times after entering one or two wordsof text in a field.

       

      I've had a look in the forum and two methods appear to be possible for catching carriage returns, but I don't really understaand the ins and outs of either method.

       

      1) Use the "In Range" option (where do I apply it and how?) to limit the input between A-Z and spaces (any idea if the a-z is listed anywhere?)

      2) Use some form of script to strip any input with a code value of 13.

       

      Can anyone suggest a way forward please?

       

      Thanks in advance.
