Hi..
Please could someone help me. I want to be able to make a user fill in both of these selection lists, and if not .. the user would be prompted to, before the form can be sent.
Im only able to validate the first list, unsure on how to add the second list in.
Here is my code.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--

function checkList(selection) {

if (selection.length == 0) {
window.alert("Make a selection.");
return false;
}

return true;

}


function checkForm(formObj) {
return checkList(formObj.myField.value);
}



// -->
</script>

</head>

<body>

<form name="myForm" action="java.html" onSubmit="return checkForm(this);">

Choose 1
<select name="myField">
<option value=""></option>
<option value="1">1</option>
</select>



Choose 2
<select name="myField2">
<option value=""></option>
<option value="2">1</option>
</select>



<input type="submit">
</form>

</body>
</html>

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks

When you post code please use code tags so it is easier to read.

You need to use the and [&&] operator

The quickest way to validate a form is to iterate the elements collection and use a switch statement to choose validation criteria by name, id, class, tagName, type or whatever, depending on how specific your validation needs to get.
