i think there is a more proper way but my solution would be to check for those characters in the while loop and if they show up automaticly delete them and play the error noise. some one else probably has a better solution though

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I would do it this way, myself.

Check for the existance of illegal characters with a StringSplit, For, StringIsXXX, Set Flag, Next loop.

Dim $input, $inputarray, $flag = 0
Do
   $input = InputBox("Test","Put test text here")
       If @error = -1 then Exit
   $inputarray = $input
   StringSplit($inputarray,""); splits each element into an array.

   For $x = 1 to $inputarray[0] step 1
      If StringIsAlpha($inputarray[$x]) = 0 or _ 
          StringIsDigit($inputarray[$x]) = 0 then $flag = 1
   Next
   If $flag = 1 then MsgBox(48,"Error","Illegal Characters Specified." & _
       @LF & "Please use only letters and numbers.",5)
Until $flag = 0
