    Hi,

    Unfortunately, we don't have any field that validates Cyrillic letters. I think there's a script that allows you to do this, but you have to use Source Codes method as a workaround.  For example: http://jsfiddle.net/CSjkP/

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately the only way to limit the entry to a specific charset would be to use javascript. As it is not possible to add one to jotform at this time, you would need to grab the source code and add the code yourself as suggested by my colleague above.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions and we would be happy o help.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hello! Thank you! I implemented it into the text field successfully.

    But I replaced the "name" field with "text" fields, because for them there is no cyrillic option for them.

    Thank you for this update!

    Hi,

    In my colleague's name you are welcome. I am glad to hear that it is working for you.

    I have moved your comment about the Full Name tool to a new thread so that we can raise a feature request for it there. You can see this new thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/468886

    While we can not guarantee that it would be added to Full Name tool since it does not have the validations as plain TextBox, you would still get updated on that thread as soon as that becomes possible.

    Best Regards,
    Ben
