Javascript Numberic Validation

the question is how can we do a java validation for a qty greater than 0 but Less than 1.  (Fraction, .1, .5, .25, etc.)

when using the onsubmit="return check(document.MA,document.MA.elements.length,'alertMA')">
and I have a text txtQty with [required="true" description="Quantity can't be zero" validationType="FLOAT" minValue="0.01"]

the system stop validating.  If I make the minValue="1" the validaion works.

Note there are many validation going on the form so putting a simple validate() does not work.

You should be able to validate txtQty by using:
if (document.getelementbyid('txtQty').value < 0 || document.getelementbyid('txtQty').value > 1)
{
     // Out of range
}

Open in new window


HINT: You should always make validation on server-side as well.

Here is the simple html example..

<script>
function validate(){
if (document.getElementById('txtQty').value <= 0 || document.getElementById('txtQty').value > 1)
{
alert("out of range");
return false;
     // Out of range
}
return true;
}
</script>
<form >
<input type="text" value="" id="txtQty" name="txtQty">
<input type="submit" value="submit" name="submit" onclick="validate();return false;">
</form>

Open in new window


Since you need to validate zero also , i have changed Medo3337 code little bit

try this, it should work in all browsers:

function validateForm() {
qty = parseFloat(document.forms["myForm"]["qty"].value);
if (isNaN(qty)) return false;
if (qty <= 0 || qty > 1) return false;
return true;
}

<form name="myForm" action="someAction.jsp" onsubmit="return validateForm()" method="post">
Qty: <input type="text" name="qty">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
