    Diable ALT key

    Hi,

    I'm up with a requirement to disable the ALT combination key press.
    For instance, if we press ALT + 1, we get ☺ character in return. I need to impose a restriction on it for not allowing such characters as a value.

    Is there any way to achieve this, any best way to control and imply it on all the textboxes of a page?
    Is there any global property on which if we change, it applies on its own, to all the existing textboxes of a page?

    -Krishna

    It could be probably easier to control the values with an onkeyup events on the textboxes...

    Have you thought about implementing validation instead of prevention?

    For example, you could implement a field change function on the text boxes that checks to see if the character is valid. If it's not, it erases it and throws an error. I feel this is more standard than preventing the user of something they're use to doing.
