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

run this source code Browser View

Full Source | JQuery

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Disable Cut, Copy, and Paste</title> <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.0.min.js"></script> </head> <body> <input type="text" id="myTextBox" placeholder="Type here"> <script> $(document).ready(function() { // Disable cut, copy, and paste for the text box $("#myTextBox").on("cut copy paste", function(e) { e.preventDefault(); }); }); </script> </body> </html>
Above code explains:
  1. We include the jQuery library using a <script> tag.
  2. We use $(document).ready() to ensure the JavaScript code is executed after the DOM has fully loaded.
  3. We select the text box with $("#myTextBox") using its ID and attach event handlers for the "cut," "copy," and "paste" events.
  4. 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.
