    How to prevent copy & paste in textbox field?

    Asked by Queensford on February 19, 2017 at 11:10 PM
    Is it possible to do this in Jotform Form Element? For example, if there is an essay text area, we don't want students to copy-paste essay into that text area.

    Unfortunately we do not have an option that would prevent copy-paste. 

    This could only be achieved if form is embedded to webpage with full source code and if you add additional code that will prevent copy-paste. 

    On thread where you originally posted your question you can see how it can be done.
