Removing carriage returns from <textarea></textarea> input - ASP

Hiya, I have a form with a <textarea></textarea> to receive user input. This input is then stored in a database and sent by fax... I need to be able to remove the carriage returns (enter key... vbcrlf...) from the input so that somebody doesn't do something like fill the textarea with 100s of keypresses of the enter key and end up spitting out tonnes of blank pages on the fax machine thanks, Clint...

    Default Removing carriage returns from <textarea></textarea> input

    Hiya,

    I have a form with a <textarea></textarea> to receive user input.

    This input is then stored in a database and sent by fax...

    I need to be able to remove the carriage returns (enter key... vbcrlf...)
    from the input so that somebody doesn't do something like fill the textarea
    with 100s of keypresses of the enter key and end up spitting out tonnes of
    blank pages on the fax machine

    thanks,

    Clint

    Default Re: Removing carriage returns from <textarea></textarea> input

    strInput = Replace(strInput, vbCrLf, "")

    Cheers
