function CheckAlphabetic(formElement)
{
value = formElement.value;
var alphaPattern = /\d/;
if (!alphaPattern.test(value))
{
return(true);
}
else
{
return false;
}
}
im using this function to check if a name has 'digits' in it. "alphapattern.test(value)" can be replaced by ".match(value)" also. Is there someothr method to do tht?? Also other than "match,test" wht are all the methods can var(alphapattern) use?

var alphaPattern = /\d/;
that's not even going to compile.
