I want to do a validation for example of Java script (SSN Validation)

var RE_SSN = /^[0-9]{3}[\- ]?[0-9]{2}[\- ]?[0-9]{4}$/;

Thanks Gurvinder.

I am trying to understand and use customized JQuery plugins.
so that I can avoid the repetition of code in my Java Script.
==
so for example if I want to use the regular expression for SSN Valodation, I used to use the function:

var RE_SSN = /^[0-9]{3}[\- ]?[0-9]{2}[\- ]?[0-9]{4}$/;

function checkvaluessn(ssn)
{
if(RE_SSN(ssn)
alert("VALID");
}

I want to write this as the plug in so that I can just use the plugin.

also please let me know how I can use plug...

       var str = this;
       var re = new RegExp("^[0-9]{3}[\- ]?[0-9]{2}[\- ]?[0-9]{4}$", "g");
       var myArray = str.match(re);

       if ( myArray != null)
       {
          return true;

var inputStr = "anyString";

you just need to put this code in one javascript file and include that file in your HTML using script tag, then it will be available across the javascript files also

replace extension.js by

$(document).ready(function()  {
      
    alert($(document).validate());
});


and remove script opening and closing tags from sample.js
