Well, assuming that your validator is correct, it is doing one thing - checking that email is not blank.

You ought to be checking that proper format such as period (.), @ sign, etc are strictly followed.

So, this simple js will accomplish both.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    function validateEmail() {
        if (document.getElementById('email').value == "") {
            alert("Email id can not be blank");
            document.getElementById('email').focus();
            return false;
        }
        var emailPat = /^\w[\w\-\'\.]+\@(\w[\w\-\']*\.)+[a-z]{2,6}$/;
        var emailid = document.getElementById('email').value;
        var matchArray = emailid.match(emailPat);
        if (matchArray == null) {
            alert("Your email address seems incorrect. Please try again.");
            document.getElementById('email').focus();
            return false;
        }
        return true;
      }
  </script>

Open in new window


Then you invoke the js on your submit button as:

 
 <asp:Button id="Registerform" runat = "server" Text="Register" OnClientClick="return validateEmail();" CssClass="noprint"/>

Open in new window
