Input Validation with Java Script

Hi experts,

in my web-application I have a form with a field that is checked for it is empty or not. I check this field over a Java-Script with the onSubmit Event on the form. Furthermore I have a Save and a Close (Action Button). The problem is that the onSubmit Event runs before the Lotus Formula in the Close Button. That means the field is also checked if I click the Close Button. Should I take another event or must I solve this by a completely another way. What is the best way in a web-application to make a input validation ?
Over Java Script Lotus Script or something else ? Can someone give me an exaple ?

Thanks a lot Tom

Hi

This can be done very easily by using Notes Formula language and JS.

But for that you may have to incorporate a javascript header on top of the form

Here is the technique.

1. Write the following passthru HTML

<Script Language="Javascript">
[--Field "Alert", Computed For Display, Formula:Alert--]
</Script>

2. In the Submit/Close button use this formula,


@If( @Trim(FIELD1) = "" ; @Do( @SetField("Alert";  "alert(\' ERROR: Unable to complete the submit process \\n REASON: One or more required fields marked by * are null ! \')"); @Return(0) ); @Do(@Command([FileSave]);@Command([FileCloseWindow])) )



Good Luck

Hi, this URL will show you how to combine Javascript with Notes actions.  I think you will find it very helpful for what you are trying to do.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thank you Hemanth,

first I forgot to say that I use Release 5, but I think it will be make the problems more less. I don't know how I make the first point. What I must I write in the JS Header event on the Form. I don't understand the line

[--Field "Alert", Computed For Display, Formula:Alert--]
and
1. Write the following passthru HTML

Thanks

Hi Tom

I am sorry for being so cryptic, Ok

[--Field "Alert", Computed For Display, Formula:Alert--]

means

Create a field named alert and set it as computed for display and default value as alert.

once you create this on the top of the form, block the test and make it as passthru html from text menu.

Your javascipt looks similar to this

<Script Language="Javascript">
[Alert]
</Script>

Thank you Hemanth,

your formula works great, but I don't understand the function of the JavaScript. The Validation works also witzout the Script in the top of the form.
