I am searching for some help to find a solution to detect french accented characters in textfield and to block the form validation.
For example if a user fill a text field with "Kilian Mbappé"
Thank you in advance for your help (I am not familiar with javacript...)
Solved! Go to Solution.
just to validate whather user input contains only allowed resp. doesn't contain fobidden characters - have a look on regular expression validation form control option.
this validation will work both in NEW and EDIT forms
if you needed the repalce just in NEW form and you do not need to/allow edit the input later on, you could use calcuated value control and write a formula with use of replace() runtime function to automatically convert forbidden characters to their allowed counterparts.
note to connect calculated value control to list field insted of input box in that case.
