Validation... AAAAAAAAAAA!

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Iv got several functions for checking if name is letters only, telephone is numbers etc.. all that works, but how can I put all these functions included into one function for a form?

Iv got:

[code]function checksignup(){
var valid = 0;


return checksurname();
return checkfirstname();
return checktelephone();

if (valid==0) {
return true;
}
}[/code]

I was hoping the above checked the other functions and if valid=0 then its able to submit the form, but if any are returning 1 (that would be an error) then do not submit the form...

Help? Please?

TIA.

If all your check functions return 0 if check was valid and say 1 if there was a problem then...
[code]
function checksignup(){
var valid = 0;


valid = checksurname();
if (valid == 0)
valid = checkfirstname();
if (valid == 0)
valid = checktelephone();

if (valid==0) {
return true;
}
}[/code]

or, simply do this:
[code]
function checksignup() {
  if (!checksurname()) return false;
  if (!checkfirstname()) return false;
  if (!checktelephone()) return false;
  return true;
}
[/code]

Thank you very much for the repies.

Both solutions work great - gone with obsidian's as it was shorter code and got more validation to add.

Many thanks!
