Disable submissions on formfield


I’m currently trying to use a form field as an interactive text field, using JS for further shenanigans.
Since I get the values of the form fields without the need for a submission, I’d like to disable the automatic submission.

If I hit enter on a form with only a text field, it automatically sends the form – which I’d like to avoid.

Is there a sensible solution, possibly with Javascript for my problem?


Hi @LeWolf,

You could try something like this in Page Settings > Custom Code > Footer Code:

$('#form').submit(function() {
  return false;

You’ll need to replace the form ID in $(’#form’).

Let me know how you go! Would be great if you could send read-only link if you need further assistance.


Hi @mww,

thanks for your suggestion!
I placed the code in a Code Embed since I wanted to disable the function for one page rather than the whole project.

Sadly hitting enter still submits the form field.

I recreated a page similar to the one it will be placed on later since I’m not allowed to share the page yet (sorry!).

Here’s the Read Only

Hi @LeWolf ,

This code should work - paste it in Page Settings > Custom Code > Before </body> tag:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.addEventListener('keydown',function(e){if(e.keyIdentifier=='U+000A'||e.keyIdentifier=='Enter'||e.keyCode==13){if(e.target.nodeName=='INPUT'&&e.target.type=='text'){e.preventDefault();return false;}}},true);

Source: javascript - jquery disable form submit on enter - Stack Overflow.

Let me know if this doesn’t work for you!
