Dear all,

  I created a Java Script function to validate input fields of a Form.  Since the form is long, instead of validate the form on Sumit, I'd like to have the page validate the input fields when a user checks one of the Check Box on the form.  Since check box changes value when clicked and unclicked, how do I make the page validates the form when the Check Box is Checked?

<html>
<head>
<script>

  function validateForm()

    { bluh bluh bluh... }

</script>
</head>


<body>

<form>

bluh..
bluh..

<input type="checkbox" name="chkbox_filled" value="Yes"> Please Validate this Section

</form>
</body>  
</html>

I would recommend using jQuery library for that:

does most of the work you want, for you.

here is what I would do
Notice the (this) and (this.form)
<html>
<head>
<script>

  function validateForm(theForm) { // pass the form to the function

    bluh bluh bluh...
    return false; // cancel submission

    bluh bluh bluh...

    return true; // allow the submission
  }

</script>
</head>


<body>

<form onsubmit="return validateForm(this)">

bluh..
bluh..

<input type="checkbox" name="chkbox_filled" value="Yes" onClick="if (this.checked) validateForm(this.form)"> Please Validate this Section

</form>
</body>  
</html>
