Hi,I have a simple html form that passes 6 variables to a servlet. I would like to make the variables required. I have no preference if I do this in the html or in the servlet. The best solution would use an input box and the minimal solution would just display text telling the user to enter the correct data.

Thanks,
Funim

if (my_form.fld1.value == '') {
  alert('fld1 is empry');
  return false;
}

-->
</script>
<Form name="my_form" action="..." method=post onSubmit="return check_form()">
