    I simply want to make some fields required in my Form

    I simply want to make the email field and contact name fields required to be completed before Submit, but my code is in need of a fix. I know it's not a state-of-the-art Form, but I just need it functioning properly. Your help will be appreciated:

    [CODE]<script type="text/javascript">
    function checkemail(){
    var str=document.myform.email_address.value;
    var filter=/^([\w-]+(?:\.[\w-]+)*)@((?:[\w-]+\.)*\w[\w-]{0,66})\.([a-z]{2,6}(?:\.[a-z]{2})?)$/i;
    if (filter.test(str))
    else {
    alert("Please input a valid email address!");
    return false;
    alert("Please enter your full name.");
    return false;
    return true;

    I also have this is the Form itself:
    <form action='form_handle.php' method='post' name='myform' onSubmit="return checkemail() && checkcontact();"

    Here try this code

    Ok I don't know to much Javascript, or PHP. But here is how this would look in ASP/VB Script, I hope that helps.

    Two files needed for my code here

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <Title> Sign Up Sheet (Test) </Title>
    <form name = "Sign Up Sheet (Test Form)" method = "post" action = "FormValidate.asp">
    First Name :<br><input type="text" name="FirstName" />
    Last Name :<br><input type="text" name="LastName"/>
    Email :<br><input type="text" name="Email" />
    Confirm Email :<br><input type="text" name="Email1" />
    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
    and then

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <Title> Sign Up Form Validation (Test) </Title>
    '' If Statements covering the Email and Email Confirmation matching (first thing to check :D )
    If Request.Form("Email")<>Request.Form("Email1") Then
    Response.Write("Email and Email Confirmation do not match, please press back on your browser and try again.")
    End If
    ''Response.End stops processing of the rest of the page, so if it fails here it won't look any further. End If closes out the If statement.
    '' If Statements to ensure that all fields have input.  So <>="" (not equal to blank)
    If Request.Form("FirstName")<>"" AND Request.Form("LastName")<>"" AND Request.Form("Email")<>"" AND Request.Form("Email1")<>"" THEN
    ''Honestly you don't need to cover Email1 but I already put it in (as it is covered by the must equal Email above anyway it can't be blank if Email can't be blank)
    ''Ok moving on next line is what to execute after THEN, we will go ahead and display the information back to the user and let them know the form was successfully processed.
    Response.Write ("First Name : " & RequestForm("FirstName") & "<br>")
    Response.Write ("Last Name : " & RequestForm("LastName") & "<br>")
    Response.Write ("Email Name : " & RequestForm("Email") & "<br>")
    Response.Write ("All Fields Verified" & "<br>")
    '' You will want to add some code here to store this information (that has now been validated not blank by this page (and that emails match)) into the database/excel document/text document you are planning on storing it in.
    Response.Write ("Added to Database")
    '' Here would be code for a link to redirect, or possibly a timer then autoredirect (so the user can see the success screen for a few seconds before being redirected to another page of your choosing.
    ''Else If statement covering any blank entries, informs the user what was blank by echoing back all the fields (you could improve on this to highlight the error in red... ;) )
    ElseIf Request.Form("FirstName")="" OR Request.Form("LastName")="" OR Request.Form("Email")="" OR Request.Form("Email1")="" THEN
    Response.Write("<font color=red>Failed to Process Form. </font> " & "<br>" & "All Required Fields were not completed, <br> or your Email and Email Confirmation do not match" & "<br>")
    Response.Write("Please review the entries below, then press back on your browser" & "<br>" & "to return to the previous page, to correct an incorrectly entered fields." & "<br>")
    Response.Write ("First Name : " & RequestForm("FirstName") & "<br>")
    Response.Write ("Last Name : " & RequestForm("LastName") & "<br>")
    Response.Write ("Email Address : " & RequestForm("Email") & "<br>")
    Response.Write ("Confirmation Email : " & RequestForm("Email") & "<br>")
    End If
    Hope this helps! Please let me know either way!

    - Cheers
