asked on

validating a text box using javascript

I have a javascript that reads the value of the firstname
textbox on a form.

If a number was entered I want it to return an alert and
say that you can only enter a string

var vFirstName = document.getElementById("<%= txtFirstName.ClientID %>")

I tried to use the "typeof" something like the code below but its not working

 var vFirstName = document.getElementById("<%= txtFirstName.ClientID %>")
            var getValueFirstName = vFirstName.value
            var result = (typeof getValueFirstName);
            if (result != 'string') {
                alert("First name should be string or letters");
                return false;
            }

please assist
