Looks like you're missing a semicolon at the end of your "end if"

Here you go...

<!--// Hide from old browsers
function validatev() {

   var SSN = document.entryform1.cssn.value;
   var LNAME = document.entryform1.lname.value;
   
   If (SSN == ""){
      alert ("Please enter a Social Security Number.");
      document.entryform1.cssn.focus();
      return false;
   }else if (LNAME == ""){
      alert ("Please enter a Last Name.");
      document.entryform1.lname.focus();
      return false;
  }else{
    // all's good
     return true;
  }
//-->

That should do it...

Gah, that's what I get for switching between languages too frequently. No "end if" in Javascript. Just delete that line and you're good to go.

Here's a full example...  Just copy and paste all the code into a new file, if you need to ....

<html><head>
<script language="Javascript">
<!--// Hide from old browsers

function validatev(formObj) {
   var SSN = formObj.cssn.value;
   var LNAME = formObj.lname.value;

   if (SSN == ""){
      alert ("Please enter a Social Security Number.");
      formObj.cssn.focus();
      return false;
   }else if (LNAME == ""){
      alert ("Please enter a Last Name.");
      formObj.lname.focus();
      return false;
  }else{
    // all's good now you can submit the form or do what ever
     return true;
  }
}
//--></script>
</head><body>
<form name="entryform1">
<input type="text" name="cssn"><br>
<input type="text" name="lname"><br>
<input type="button" name="sbutton" value="ok" onClick="validatev(document.entryform1);">
</form></body></html>

Hi,

While you submitted I was still working at a solution --> This would have been mine:

<html>
<head>
<script Language="JavaScript">

function validRequired1(entryform1,thefield)
{

  var result = true;
 
  if (entryform1.value == "")
  {
    alert('Please enter a value for the "' + thefield +'" field.');
    entryform1.focus();
    result = false;
  }
 
  return result;
}

function validRequired2(entryform1,thefield)
{

  var result = true;
 
  if (entryform1.value == "")
  {
    alert('Please enter a value for the "' + thefield +'" field.');
    entryform1.focus();
    result = false;
  }
 
  return result;
 
}

function validateForm(entryform1)
{

  if (!validRequired1(entryform1.cssn,"Social Security Number"))
    return false;

  if (!validRequired2(entryform1.lname,"Your Name"))
    return false;
 
  return true;
 
}

</script>
</head>
<body>
<form method="GET" action="validate.html" onsubmit="return validateForm(this)">
<font face="verdana, geneva, helvetica" size="2"><p align="left">
Social Security No.: <input size="32" name="cssn"><br>
Your Name: <input size="32" name="lname"><br>
</p>
<p>
<input type="submit" value="Register" name="submit"></p>
</font>
</form>
</body>
</html>



... but D_M_Ds' solution was absolutely right and correct!!! --> I just wanted to share MY result!


Best regards, Raisor
