BackSpace and Readonly fields

Harry Rogers

Recommended Posts

Hi All

You may know that the backspace key acts as a browser back button when no field has focus.

The result of user trying to backspace over a readonly field is to end up on the previous page from the browser history.

Obviously this is bad news in an app!

Had a bit of a hunt around Google and there are a number of discussions on the subject.

I tried this script


in the Script property of a UniForm but get an Ajax error ( 'unexpected identifier / unexpected token ' - depending on how it is laid out in the Tstrings editor) when the form loads.

Anyone any ideas or other solutions.


Many Thanks
