Invalid String

Question

When I try to create or edit an item, why do I receive the following error:

Invalid String

A value you have entered is not permitted: [string]. Please enter a different value and try again.

Answer

In order to prevent against possible cross-site scripting attacks, some fields prevent the use of HTML code and/or javascript special words.  A regular expression pattern is used to check for the values, which include, but are not limited to:

  • onmouseover
  • alert(
  • alert%28
  • onmouseout
  • onmouseup
  • onfocus
  • onblur
  • onclick
  • ondblclick
  • onmousedown
  • tosource
  • valueof
  • tostring
  • tolocalstring
  • concat
  • charat
  • substr
  • substring
  • valueof
  • every(
  • every%28
  • exec(
  • exec%28
