hey all,

Below are the javascript to check on the textbox value. The textbox only allow user to enter 0 and the maximum value 100 but I also need to allow the user to enter '-' and 'X'. How do I modify the code to suits the criteria?

<input type="text" class="text-input small-input" maxlength="3" size="1" name="tov[]" value="0" onkeyup="this.value = minmax(this.value, 0, 100)"/> 


<script type="text/javascript"> 
function minmax(value, min, max) 
{
    if(parseInt(value) < 0 || isNaN(value)) 
        return 0; 
    else if(parseInt(value) > 100) 
        return 100; 
	  else return value;
}
</script>

Edit function as below:
<script type="text/javascript"> 
function minmax(value, min, max) 
{
    if(value=="-") return "-";
    if(value=="x" || value=="X") return "X";

    if(parseInt(value) < 0 || isNaN(value)) 
        return 0; 
    else if(parseInt(value) > 100) 
        return 100;

To clear on backspace mod as follows:
<script type="text/javascript"> 
function minmax(e,value, min, max) 
{
    // Clear on backspace FF etc..
    if (e.which) {
    var chk = e.which;
    if (chk == 08) return "";
       }

    // Clear on backspace IE etc..
    if (e.keyCode) {
    var chk = e.keyCode;
    if (chk == 08) return ""; 
       }
       
    if(value=="-") return "-";
    if(value=="x" || value=="X") return "X";

    if(parseInt(value) < 0 || isNaN(value)) 
        return 0; 
    else if(parseInt(value) > 100) 
        return 100;
