Disable Copy or Paste action for text box
To disable cut, copy, and paste actions in a textbox using jQuery, you can attach event handlers to the textbox element and prevent the default behavior of these events. Here's an example:
Disable Cut, Copy, and Paste
Full Source | JQuery
- We include the jQuery library using a <script> tag.
- We select the text box with $("#myTextBox") using its ID and attach event handlers for the "cut," "copy," and "paste" events.
- Inside the event handlers, we prevent the default behavior using e.preventDefault().
This code will disable the cut, copy, and paste actions for the specified text box using jQuery. However, as mentioned previously, it's important to consider the user experience and potential accessibility issues when implementing such restrictions, as users may have legitimate reasons for using these actions.
