I am using the insRow() function to add rows to a table.
function insRow()
{
    var x=document.getElementById('myTable').insertRow(TRCount)
    var y=x.insertCell(0)
    var z=x.insertCell(1)
    showCount = TRCount + 1
    y.innerHTML=showCount
    z.innerHTML="<TEXTAREA style=overflow:hidden NAME='task"+TRCount+"' ROWS='' COLS='45'></TEXTAREA>"
    TRCount++;
}
But when I submit the form i need to make sure that none of the textarea is empty(Simple javascript validation).But it does not seem to work here.

function submitForm()
{
   var count = document.getElementById("mytable").rows.length

   for(var i=0; i<count; i++)
      {
         alert("task"+i.value)
         if("task'"+i+"'".value=="")
       {
                 alert("Please Enter Task");
                 return;
           }
          }
     form1.action="addAdminReport.jsp";
     form1.submit();
      
}
Please Help

Here my proposal:

<html>
<head>
<script>
var TRCount=0;
function insRow(){
    var x=document.getElementById('myTable').insertRow(TRCount)
    var y=x.insertCell(0)
    var z=x.insertCell(1)
    showCount = TRCount + 1
    y.innerHTML=showCount
    z.innerHTML="<TEXTAREA style='overflow:hidden' NAME='task"+TRCount+"' ROWS='' COLS='45'></TEXTAREA>"
    TRCount++;
}

function submitForm(theForm){
   elem = theForm.elements;
   for(var i=0; i<elem.length; i++){
     if(elem[i].type=='textarea' && elem[i].name.substr(0,4)=='task'){
       alert(elem[i].name+": "+elem[i].value) // only for debugging
       if(elem[i].value==""){
         alert("Please Enter Task");
         elem[i].focus();
         return false;
       }
     }
   }
   theForm.action="addAdminReport.jsp";
   return true;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="form1" onSubmit="return submitForm(this)">
<table id="myTable">
</table>
<input type=button value="Add" onClick="insRow()">
<input type=submit>
</body>
</html>
