This is my current code, the quantity11 field has to have an input that is greater than 1 for the form to submit.  I have two other fields I need checked as well quantity12 and quantityreg.

<script type="text/javascript">
		function check() {
			var elements = document.getElementsByName("quantity11");


			for (var i=0; i<elements.length; i++) {

				var nmbr = parseInt(elements[i].value,10);
				if (nmbr < 1){
					alert("Please add at least 1 treat pack to your order to proceed.");
					return false;
				}
			}
			
			return true;
		}
	</script>

Open in new window


 I need to add quantity11, quantity12, and quantityreg all together and then check to see if they are greater than 1 to return true.  How can I add them together on the 3rd line?

I don't know. I think you should consider using a JQuery validator. There are probably more than one available, but after a quick search here's one that looks promising:

Simply use as this example provides:

That method would work but I still need the 3 fields sum'd or added together before the check somehow.

I tried this approach but the code doesn't appear to work.
<script type="text/javascript">
		function check() {
			var element1 = document.getElementsByName("quantity11");
			var element2 = document.getElementsByName("quantity12");
			var element3 = document.getElementsByName("quantityreg");
			var elements = +element1 + +element2 + +element3;
			for (var i=0; i<elements.length; i++) {

				var nmbr = parseInt(elements[i].value,10);
				if (nmbr < 1){
					alert("Please add at least 1 treat pack to your order to proceed.");
					return false;
				}
			}
			
			return true;
		}
	</script>

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Just fixed the issue on my own with the following code.

<script type="text/javascript">
		function check() {
			var element1 = document.getElementsByName("quantity11");
			var element2 = document.getElementsByName("quantity12");
			var element3 = document.getElementsByName("quantityreg");
			
			for (var i=0; i<element1.length; i++) {

				var nmbr1 = parseInt(element1[i].value,10);
				var nmbr2 = parseInt(element2[i].value,10);
				var nmbr3 = parseInt(element3[i].value,10);
				var nmbr = nmbr1 + nmbr2 + nmbr3;
				if (nmbr < 1){
					alert("Please add at least 1 treat pack to your order to proceed.");
					return false;
				}
			}
			
			return true;
		}
	</script>

Fine, but if nbr1 = -5 and nbr2 = 10 and nbr3 = 10, you have a nbr = 15 and you didn't meet your requirements.
