password fields check using ajax

i am trying to check the values in password and confirm password fields!

currently it is working fine!

the problem is as soon as i type in password and focus to the confirm field, it shows me the message, while i want that after entering the password field and then after the confirm password field when it should leave focus from the confirm password then it should match and show that there is error!

my current code is nt doing like this

<cfdiv bindOnLoad="False" bind="url:checkpassword.cfm?password_buyer={password}&confirm={re_password}&sting=4" ID="theDiv_pass1" style="color:red;"/><div id="theDiv_pass1"></div>

there seem to be two things going on in that eBay code, the first verifies the quality of your password, the second compares the two entries and show the red text if they are not the same.   It sounds like you are trying to accomplish this second one.

This seems like simple javascript that should be on the second field.

The javascript would be something like this...

<input id="p1" name="pswd">
<input id="p2" name="confirmPswd" onChange="if (documnet.getElementById('p1').value != this.value) {document.getElementById('warn').style.display='block';} else {document.getElementById('warn').style.display='none';}>

<div id="warn" style="display:none;">Passwords don't match</div>

If you want to do that pop-up bubble with the tips, then you could use the ajax stuff only on the first field.

if you are changing the confirm password (the 2nd field) to the correct value the javascript if statement will either hide or show the warning DIV.  

onChange="if (documnet.getElementById('p1').value != this.value) {document.getElementById('warn').style.display='block';} else {document.getElementById('warn').style.display='none';}


You can add this to the first password field...   it will hide the warning and clear the 2nd field for entry

 onChange="documnet.getElementById('p2').value =''; document.getElementById('warn').style.display='none';"

Sounds like that should be part of the check in your first password along with testing the strength in the little pop-up div.

I thought this was all set - you were going to add it to the CF ajax part where you popup that window?

Since that is on the Server side you can use coldfusion with a simple check..

 <cfif len(url.password) gt 0 and len(url.password) lte 5>
    Not Long Enough...
</cfif>
