    Trouble with JS Contact Form

    I'm trying to set up a contact form on my website that will require users to enter their name, email and choose a reason for the contact from a drop box. I can not get the darn thing to work. Any suggestions would be immensely appreciated. BTW, I'm new to the world of Java, so be gentle. Many thanks, Austin

    my code:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <!-- saved from url=(0031)http://ramsites.net/~burgessag/ -->
    <HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Contact</TITLE><script language="JavaScript"></script>
    <script language="JavaScript">

    function validate() {
    if(check_validation('current')) {
    var response="___________________________________________\n\n";
    response += "The form was not submitted due to the following errors.\n";
    response += "Please correct these error(s) and re-submit.\n";
    response += "___________________________________________\n";

    var Tie_Line=/\d{3}-\d{4}/;
    var empty_fields ="";

    if ( ! Tie_Line.test( f.Tie_Line.value )) {
    empty_fields += "\n- Please fill in all required fields";

    } else {
    return false;
    if (empty_fields == "") {
    } else {
    response += empty_fields + "\n";
    return false;

    Thumbs down Without <form></form> tags...

    It's IE-only.

    This code <input type="submit" value="Submit" onClick="validate();return false;" name="submit"> is incorrect. You are returning a values of false regardless of whether your input was valid or not which causes the submit to be canceled.

    You should be returning a value of true from your validation function if everything's ok and your call should be onclick="return validate();" so whatever value is returned by the validate function is passed on to the onclick handler.
    Check out the Forum Search. It's the short path to getting great results from this forum.
