Hi I don't know much java script, here is some code I'm trying out
function validate(){
      var user = document.optionsForm.user.value;
      alert(user);
->      if(isWhitespace(user)){
            warnInvalid("Must enter the Database login name");
            return false;
      }
      var pw1=document.optionsForm["password1"].value;
      var pw2=document.optionsForm["password2"].value;
      alert(pw1,pw2);
      if(pw1==pw2){
            return true;
      }
      else{
            warnInvalid("The passwords entered do not match");
            return false;
      }
}

The html document has a form optionsForm with inputs user password1 and password2. onsubmit of the for this function is called. When I fill out the fields and press submit I'm getting a Object expected error. it says the error is coming form line 9 which is the isWhitespace(user) line. But when the alert box goes or it has displays the correct value? I'm not sure what is happening.
Any Ideas?

Thanks
David

Change these to...

     var pw1=document.optionsForm.password1.value;
     var pw2=document.optionsForm.password2.value;

Two questions :
do these functions "isWhitespace" and "warnInvalid" exist ?

Normally we give alert ("Must enter the Database login name")

Remember Javascript is case-sensitive. So check for uppercase/lowercase in function names.
Hope that helps

That was it!  isWhitespace and warnInvalid are in FormChek.js from netscape. But i didn't include it in my code.

Thanks
