Hi Guys,
I'm having strange problem here. With the below mentioned code if the enter some value in the text box and hit ENTER key the page is reloading automatically with query string. If I enter 323232 in the text field and hit enter the page reloads with url
temp5.asp?text1=323232. What could be the problem ? I don't want anything to happen if I press enter key. How to fix it ?
<%@ Language=VBScript %>

<script language="Javascript">

function validateData() {
if (document.form1.text1.value == "") {
alert("Please enter Number.");

<head> </head>

<form name=form1>
<table align=center>
<td> Number </td>
<td> <input type="text" maxlength="20" size=30 name="text1" id="text1"> </td>
<input type="button" value="GO" onclick="validateData()" id=button1 name=button1>

Hitting enter is pressing your button, which is firing you script, which is submitting your form. To confirm this, you could pop an alert inside the script. You could disable the button until you are ready for it. You could perform some sort of test before submitting the form in your script. There are a bunch of solutions depending on what you are trying to accomplish.

The problem is that the Javascript is not finding the Validate.asp page. It is creating a new temp page. With temp5.asp would seem that you have tried this 5 times. I would suggest reviewing the documentation on javacript. Using javascript for forms is complex. I always recommend that you use the action and method in the form tag.
This is only a suggestion.
