Hi all

In a form, i should not allow the user to type any characters other than numbers.

Currently i am using struts 1.1 Validator, which is showing error on submission only.

Thanks in advance

Struts validation is designed to be invoked only when a form is submitted. If you want something other than that, you will have to write it yourself in javaScript.

hi Merrill

Thanks for ur reply.......I go for Javascript

One more small doubt???

I want to validate a username on registration,

Name should start with character and not a number,but number can present except as a first character..........

For this too i want to go for javascript OR any other way to do in struts validator itself

You can accomplish this with the match() string function in javaScript along with a regular expression (regex).

If you're not familiar with regular expressions, here's a link to learn how to use them:
