Posted on 2004-10-22

Hi All,

In ASP.NET, I have a Submit Button. On the click of the button, I need to add a Javascript confirmation if a particular condition matches. The application should first do the required field validations, then check for the condition and then promt a confirmation to submit the form.
The submit should happen depending on the confirmation of the user.
Kindly help me out.
I tried this by includitn the following line in Page_Load()

this.btnSave.Attributes["onclick"] = "return fnConfirm(this);";

By doing this, the javascript confirmation works, but no other validations are fired.

    Put the validation on the form.onSubmit event:
    this.MyForm["onSubmit"]="return fnConfirm(this);";

    OR you can regester for the event in the HTML:

    <form name='MyForm'  action=...  onSubmit="return fnConfirm(this)">

    The fnConfirm function will take the form as a parameter and check each field for validity.  If a field is invalid, display a message and return FALSE.

    If All are valid, then return true
