Hello professionals,
I need a little help... How can I disable the possibility a user to be able to add special characters in Shipping address or payments address, or even in the whole checkout text fields? I will use MyPos for Payment gateway and if there is a special symbol in the fields they cannot proceed with the payment so I need to disable user to add ""$#!№ and the other special symbols... Thank you in advance.

You can try adding a javascript function, and use the keypress event, to either show a warning about special character or block it completely

Thank you for the advice but I think it will be better with a validation but cannot find where is the validation in opencart files...

Don't annoy the user, just run it though this before you send to the gateway:

If you're not a programmer, probably post it as a paid job in Commercial Support.

You'll need to be modify the payment gateway itself which isn't a built-in one, so may be best done by a professional.

Here's an example on how to deal with special characters:

You can clean the fields in function create_post at catalog/controller/extension/payment/mypos_virtual.php

as example:

Code: Select all

$post['CustomerAddress'] = $order_info['payment_address_1'];
would become:

Code: Select all

$post['CustomerAddress'] = $this->noSpecialCharacters($order_info['payment_address_1']);
if you add that function to the class:

Code: Select all

private function noSpecialCharacters($str) {
    return preg_replace('/[^A-Za-z0-9\-]/', '', $str);
}
do the same for the other fields you wish to clean.
