How do I prevent a user from entering a website into a text field?

Is there a way to prevent users from entering specific types of data into a text box? My requirement is to prevent the users from entering any '@' symbol, as well as 'https://' and 'http://'

I think I can use the IsMatch function to prevent the user from entering any data that contains '@', but how do I prevent the user from entering a website into the text box?

Thanks for your help.

Hi @Spawn10 ,

Try this on the OnChange of the Text box

If(
   "http" in Self.Text || "www" in Self.Text,
   Notify("Your cannot enter a website here", Error),
   Reset(Self)
)

Thanks WarrenBelz, 

for the response. I am trying that out now...will this also prevent the data from being submitted? It does display the message, but seems like it also allows the data entered to be submitted.

@Spawn10 ,

The reset will wipe the text, so it cannot be submitted.
