Please help me in writing a javascript to validate string of the format "A23d:1234". First four digits of alphanumeric characters and then a colon and then four numeric characters. I am inputting 5 different strings of this format into a text area which has 5 rows ..each limited to 9 characters. If the format fails for any of the row an alert should be thrown. I am trying to use the substring function but facing issues in validating the string of each row.

Use a regular expression.
