Code seems fine if you want to check for postal codes that are exactly 5 digits long but you said alpha-numeric postal codes.

Your regular expression is only checking for digits - not alphas.

What are the possible inputs with respect to your postal codes that you want to validate for?

Example : var codes = ["SO15 0HX","SO15 0HY"];

i want to check only two alphanumeric postal code only ("SO15 0HX","SO15 0HY").

1. if enter code contain only numeric or only letters
{ alert("Postal code not valid") }
2. Or enter alphanumeric either of correctly ("SO15 0HX","SO15 0HY") go to other page..
3. Or enter alphanumeric is wrong of (ex. S015 00X) {alert ("postal code is not found").

How i make that possibilities in my code?

So are there only two correct postal codes?

If this is the case why not have a radio button or drop down for this selection or have a check

if (postal_code != "SO15 0HX" && postal_code != "SO15 0HY") ...

Or are there potentially other valid codes?

If they are fixed then why not have them in a drop down?

Yes that will work - in future describe your problem a bit better - the problem as presented was using a regular expression with no mention of an array of postal codes. By giving more information you can help experts give you the answer you need quicker.
