Validating a tax id
To learn more about the event object, take a look at JS.88.560– make sure to click on the button in the upper left corner to display the navigation pane if it’s not shown automatically.
The third bulletpoint is a little difficult for me to solve in an elegant way.
These functions check the validity of a UK postcode specified by the supplied parameter. The definition of a valid postcode has been taken from the official specification, and from the list of BFPO codes.
To start, we create a text field and bring up the properties dialog for the field.After the “Edit” button is clicked, a new window will open that allows us to edit the new script: This script also includes a check for an empty string, so that the user can wipe out a wrong string and start from scratch.As I mentioned before, information is passed to the validation function in the event object, and in the code we see that the member ‘value’ is used to communicate the current value of the field.Use those flags in the beginning of your script (or functions) for input validation just like you would in any other programming language.Analyze payment processing with an easy-to-use suite of online tools, gaining greater insight to quickly and effectively manage your electronic transactions.
This is not always desired (for more complicated data, it will probably be much easier to take a look, correct that one typo and continue with the rest of the form), so my preference is actually to mark the field so that the user knows which field needs to be corrected, and have the validation script not report a validation error back to the field: Using this method has implications on the form submission process: The form no longer can verify that the data is correct, so the submission function needs to do another round of validation to see if any of the required fields are not correct (one way to do that is to test all relevant fields to see if the text color is using the error color, or we can use global variables to store the validation state).
