I am comparing two text fields and the second field value has to behigher than the first field value.The code is as under:-

<html>
<head>
     <title>Untitled</title>
     <script language="JavaScript">
     function fixPctEnd(tf, perst)
     {                      
                if((tf.value < perst)&(perst !=0))
                {                      
                        alert('Please enter percentage that is same as or higher than '+perst);
                        tf.value = "";
                        tf.focus();
                }        
     }
     </script>
</head>

<body>
<form>
<input type="text" size="5" name="base" value="">% and
<input type="text" size="5" name="max" value="" onChange="fixPctEnd(this,form.base.value)">%
</form>
</body>
</html>

WHen I enter single digit or double digits in both the fields then, it works fine. I try 12 in the first and 2 in the second, it does not give the alert ??? where am I going wrong......need help. Also, when enter 1 instead of 2 in the second field(with first field as 12) it works.

Thanks, Ajay

Try this:

<html>
<head>
    <title>Untitled</title>
    <script language="JavaScript">
    function fixPctEnd(tf, perst)
    {                      
               if((tf.value < perst) && (perst !=0))
               {                      
                       alert('Please enter percentage that is same as or higher than ' + perst);
                       tf.value = "";
                       tf.focus();
               }        
    }
    </script>
</head>

<body>
<form>
<input type="text" size="5" name="base" value="">% and
<input type="text" size="5" name="max" value="" onChange="fixPctEnd(this, parseInt(this.form.base.value))">%
</form>
</body>
</html>

Basically you need to convert the string to an int in order to use it in the way you want.

In fact I've just noticed a mistake.....try this:

<html>
<head>
    <title>Untitled</title>
    <script language="JavaScript">
    function fixPctEnd(tf, perst)
    {                      
               if((parseInt(tf.value) < perst) && (perst !=0))
               {                      
                       alert('Please enter percentage that is same as or higher than ' + perst);
                       tf.value = "";
                       tf.focus();
               }        
    }
    </script>
</head>

<body>
<form>
<input type="text" size="5" name="base" value="">% and
<input type="text" size="5" name="max" value="" onChange="fixPctEnd(this, parseInt(this.form.base.value))">%
</form>
</body>
</html>
