Dear all,
I have a editor attached with a text box and i want to restrict user from using "Enter" button so that user enter data without hitting "Enter".

Urgent help is required, so any hint or help will be appreciated.

Regards,
Kashif

I assume the problem is that the user is pressing 'Enter' while they have the 'edit' window open and the resulting text is causing problems when you export it to other applications.

I suggest you determine exactly which codes are being stored in the text. Probably a CHR(13) or CHR(10) or something similar.

In the 'When-Validate-Item' trigger on this item do an INSTR, find if there are any 'Enter' characters and then do either a 'substr' to remove that character or a 'replace' or a 'translate' to replace it with a space.

Dear Djmartin,
Thanks for reply. Actually the problem was that when i export that data into excel then that user pressed "Enter" on runtime editor comes into play and would create new excel cells in short excel converted report was a disaster but now i wrote the following code on post-insert trigger
update table t
set t.comments = replace(t.comments,chr(10),chr(32))
where t.table_id = :table1.table_id;


so if user even pressed "enter" on the editor

before commit all "Enter" will be replaced by "Space".

And it worked for me.

Regards,
Kashif

Couldn't you do the same thing just on the current item in the 'Pre-Insert' or 'When-Validate-Item' triggers? That way, the data is 'cleaned' BEFORE it gets to the database!
