Form Validation Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am trying to validate a form, and am getting the error messages as needed, but it submits the form anyway.

 

Here is the Java:

 

function validate (form){

 

var returnValue = true;

 

var email = CSLavRequestForm.email.value;

var phone = CSLavRequestForm.phoneNumber.value;

var groupName = CSLavRequestForm.workshopName.value;

 

if (email.length < 6){

returnValue = false;

alert("Please Enter Valid email");

CSLavRequestForm.email.focus();

}

if (phone.length < 10){

returnValue = false;

alert("Please Enter Valid Phone Number");

CSLavRequestForm.phone.focus();

}

if (groupName.length < 3){

returnValue = false;

alert("Please Enter Valid Workshop/Region");

CSLavRequestForm.groupName.focus();

}

 

return returnValue;

}

 

and the form line in the html:

 

 

 

I am stuck! Benn working on this for way too long

 

Thanks & Regards,

Lokananth

The focus() function after the alerts were sending the form. Removed them and made some changes, and it works

 

function validate(form){
   var returnValue = true;

   var email = form.email.value;
   var phone = form.phoneNumber.value;
   var groupName = form.workshopName.value;

   if (email.length < 6){
       returnValue = false;
       alert("Please Enter Valid email");
   }
   if (phone.length < 10){
       returnValue = false;
       alert("Please Enter Valid Phone Number");
   }
   if (groupName.length < 3){
       returnValue = false;
       alert("Please Enter Valid Workshop/Region");
   }

   return returnValue;
}

 

If anyone's got an explanation why the focus() method sends a form, then please shed some light :D
