I got this code I implemented it to the website. How do I make null values okay.

Check this code...

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

/**

 */
// Declaring valid date character, minimum year and maximum year
var dtCh= "/";
var minYear=1900;
var maxYear=2100;

function isInteger(s){
     var i;
    for (i = 0; i < s.length; i++){  
        // Check that current character is number.
        var c = s.charAt(i);
        if (((c < "0") || (c > "9"))) return false;
    }
    // All characters are numbers.
    return true;
}

function stripCharsInBag(s, bag){
     var i;
    var returnString = "";
    // Search through string's characters one by one.
    // If character is not in bag, append to returnString.
    for (i = 0; i < s.length; i++){  
        var c = s.charAt(i);
        if (bag.indexOf(c) == -1) returnString += c;
    }
    return returnString;
}

function daysInFebruary (year){
     // February has 29 days in any year evenly divisible by four,
    // EXCEPT for centurial years which are not also divisible by 400.
    return (((year % 4 == 0) && ( (!(year % 100 == 0)) || (year % 400 == 0))) ? 29 : 28 );
}
function DaysArray(n) {
     for (var i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
          this[i] = 31
          if (i==4 || i==6 || i==9 || i==11) {this[i] = 30}
          if (i==2) {this[i] = 29}
   }
   return this
}

function isDate(dtStr){

Hi eteran,

What do you mean by "null" values? Do you mean just if it's empty? If so, you can put this where the form is:

<form method="POST" action="ll.asp">
  <input type="text" name="T1" value="" size="20" onblur="if(this.value!=''){ValidateForm(T1);}">
  <input type="text" name="T2" value="" size="20" onblur="if(this.value!=''){validatenum(T2);}">
  <input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1">
  <input type="reset" value="Reset" name="B2"></p>
</form>
