How to create a single line entry field?

Tiemo,
I dealt with this issue this as well.  I did what others have suggested:

on enterInField
-- do something (click or send mouseup or other command), or nothing just to stop the enter key
end enterInField

on returnInField
-- do something (click or send mouseup or other command), or nothing just to stop the enter key
end returnInField

To deal with the multiple lines I did this:

put line 1 of cd fld x into cd fld x -- gets rid of multipple lines in field x

This gets rid of extra lines that were entered possibly by a paste command since a return key would not work based on the above code.  But the above code does not stop a return being pasted into the text by the user.


Jim...
