I didn't get any responses on this question except an email telling me I didn't get any responses and I must have not worded the question correctly or I put it in the wrong zone...well I read the question over and I don't see how i could have been more explicit on what I was asking and I put it in the confusion zone because that is where I am building.  So I'm not sure what else to put here...so here is still my question, please.

Is there a way to validate a field in a flash form within cfinput that states the user MUST have entered exactly 6 characters in the field.  The field is alpha numeric so it's not like i can use a range and i have the maxlength attribute attached but that just keeps the end user from entering more than 6 characters but allows them to add less than 6 (but we can't have that).  Here is the code I am using for the cfinput field:
<CFINPUT name="strField01"
       label="User ID:"
      width="200"
      align="left"
      mask="AA999X"
      maxlength="6"
      required="yes"
      validate="noblanks,maxlength"
      message="You must enter the users ID and in the proper format XX9999 or XX999X.">

I've not used flash forms much but here is solution I stumbled across.  Perhaps it will help.

Listing 1
<script language="JavaScript">
function validatePassword(form,field,value) {
if (value.length < 6) {
return 0;
}
else {
return 1;
}
}
 
</script>
 
<cfform name="form1">
<table>
<tr>
<td>Password:</td>
<td><cfinput type="Password" name="pw"
message="Please enter a password of at least 6 letters"
onvalidate="validatePassword"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Text:</td>
<td><TEXTAREA name="address" rows="3" cols="26"></TEXTAREA>
<!-- <CFINPUT name="address" required="yes"
message="Please enter some text"> -->
</td>
</tr>
 
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td><input type="submit" value="Check"></td>
</tr>
</table>
</cfform>

I forgot this was still open as I went a different route.  I will try this when I get a chance but will provide you with the points since nobody else had responded.  I thank you for your help and pointing me in the right direction to assist in my question.  Thanks again...
