jQuery - Allow Alphanumeric (Alphabets & Numbers) Characters in Textbox using JavaScript

Apr 22, 2013

Here I will show how to use JQuery to allow only alphanumeric characters in textbox or make textbox to allow only alphabets & numbers using JQuery.

In previous posts I explained jQuery allow alphabetic characters in textbox,  jQuery Allow only numbers in textbox, jQuery disable cut copy and paste options in textbox, jQuery Create Rounded Corners Textbox, jQuery slideUp, slideDown and slideToggle Example and many articles relating to JQuery, JavaScript, Now I will explain how to allow only alphanumeric characters in textbox using JQuery.

To allow only alphabets & numbers in textbox using JQuery we need to write the following code

<html xmlns="">
<title>jQuery Allow only alphanumeric characters in textbox</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
$('#txtNumeric').keydown(function (e) {
if (e.shiftKey || e.ctrlKey || e.altKey) {
} else {
var key = e.keyCode;
if (!((key == 8) || (key == 32) || (key == 46) || (key >= 35 && key <= 40) || (key >= 65 && key <= 90) || (key >= 48 && key <= 57) || (key >= 96 && key <= 105))) {
<b>Enter Text:</b><input type="text" id="txtNumeric" />
