function validate()
{
if (document.frm.id.value == "")
{
alert("Enter Package Name");
document.frm.id.focus();
return (false);
}
chkId=/^[WAP_]{4}\d{2}$/;
if (chkId.test(document.frm.id.value))
{}
else
{
alert('Invalid \"Pack Name\" Entry');
return false;
}
if (document.frm.act.value == "")
{
alert("Enter Activation Status");
document.frm.act.focus();
return (false);
}
chkAct=/^[MA]{2}\d{2}$/;
if (chkAct.test(document.frm.act.value))
{}
else
{
alert('Invalid \"Activation Status\" Entry');
return false;
}
if (document.frm.deact.value == "")
{
alert("Enter De-Activation Status");
document.frm.deact.focus();
return (false);
}
chkDeact=/^[MD]{2}\d{2}$/;
if (chkDeact.test(document.frm.deact.value))
{}
else
{
alert('Invalid \"De-Activation Status\" Entry');
return false;
}
if (document.frm.allwpp.selectedIndex < 0)
{
alert("Select one of the \"Allow Post-Paid or Not\" options.");
document.frm.allwpp.focus();
return (false);
}
if (document.frm.allwpp.selectedIndex == 0)
{
alert("Select \"Allow Post-Paid or Not\" option.");
document.frm.allwpp.focus();
return (false);
}
if (document.frm.shrt.value == "")
{
alert("Enter Package Name");
document.frm.shrt.focus();
return (false);
}
return true;
}
function trim(stringToTrim)
{
return stringToTrim.replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g,"");
}
function login()
{
if(validate())
{
xmlHttp=GetXmlHttpObject();
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
{
req = new XMLHttpRequest();
}
else if (window.ActiveXObject)
{
req = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
}
var id =document.getElementById("id").value;
var url="/xmlgprs/login.xml";
url=url+"?id="+id;
xmlHttp.onreadystatechange=stateChanged;
xmlHttp.open("GET",url,true);
xmlHttp.send(null);
}
}
function stateChanged()
{
if (req.readyState == 4)
{
if (req.status == 200)
{
parseMsg();
}
else
{
alert("Unable to retrieve");
}
}
}
function parseMsg()
{
response = req.responseXML.documentElement;
var node = response.getElementsByTagName(id);
var chkNode;
var chkNode1 = chkNode.equals(node);
idArray = new Array();
for(var i=0;i<chkNode1;i++)
{
var node1 = node.item(i);
idArray[i] = node1.text;
}
viewElement();
}
function viewElement()
{
alert("valid");
}

Thanks in advance,
madhu.

Please UseCodeTags when posting code or configuration. Unformatted code and configuration is unnecessarily difficult to read. You can edit your post by using the button.

And please post only the relevant code: most of this is form element validation, which has nothing to do with XML.

And I tell you what: the first time a form makes me submit multiple times for multiple validation errors, I'm off the site, because they don't care enough about me to do it right.

And for goodness sake, refactor :(

And use a JavaScript library--doing Ajax "by hand" is pointless.

And huh?

I'd really rather not have to keep saying that :(
