Javascript number and length validation

This is validation for the length of the input number but i need to validate that the actual input is in fact a number with no letters

  if (document.login.userID.value == "" || document.login.userID.value.length != 6) {
    alert("Please enter your 6-digit Employee ID to begin your training.")
    document.login.userID.focus();
    return false;
  }

Sorry, too much C#  = )

Change line 3 to:

var reg = new RegExp("^[0-9]{6}$");

You could use a regular expression and take care of it all in one shot:

e.g.

RegExp reg = new RegExp("^[0-9]{6}$");

if (!reg.test(document.login.userID.value)) {
    alert("Please enter your 6-digit Employee ID to begin your training.")
    document.login.userID.focus();
    return false;
}

Open in new window


The pattern means:

^      - Start of string
[0-9]  - Any numeric digit
{6}    - 6 of the thing to the left; in this case, any numeric digit
$      - End of string

I mean there is more javascript in the file.  If you look at line 103 you will see where it starts -  http://uploads.guestservices.com/CASH_HANDLING/Cashier/index.htm

I must be missing something, but I don't see an issue. Just include what I suggest above as the first if clause.

e.g.

function saveLoginName() {

    RegExp reg = new RegExp("^[0-9]{6}$");

    if (!reg.test(document.login.userID.value)) {
        alert("Please enter your 6-digit Employee ID to begin your training.")
        document.login.userID.focus();
        return false;
    } else if(document.login.userFirst.value == "" || document.login.userFirst.value == "") {
        alert("Your full first name must be entered");
        document.login.userFirst.focus()
        return false
    } else if(document.login.userLast.value == "" || document.login.userLast.value == "") {
        alert("Your last name must be entered");
        document.login.userLast.focus()
        return false
    }

    setCookie("userName", document.login.userID.value)
    setCookie("userFirst", document.login.userFirst.value)
    setCookie("userLast", document.login.userLast.value)
    setCookie("studn", document.login.userID.value)
    document.login.submit()
}
