Hi - I have an online employment application form that I uses CGI script to send the data to my email. I do not want a blank form to get submitted. I need some simple javascript that can check to see if all fields are empty and if so not to submit the form.  A window can pop up saying something like the form has not been completed. What is the best way to achieve this? Thank you.

Is there a way to check for a completely blank form instead of an individual field?

You can do like this:


function checkscript() {
	for (i=0;i<4;i++) {
		box = document.example.elements[i];
		if (!box.value) {
			alert('You haven\'t filled in ' + box.name + '!');
			box.focus()
			return false;
		}
	}
	return true;
}
