Making regexp case insensitive within javascript

There is code on one of my pages which produces a message if a specified regular expression is not entered correctly into a form field.  I would like to make this regexp case insensitive, with respect to the word "Maui".  Could you provide the code for that?

frmvalidator.addValidation("captcha","regexp=Maui","Please check your spelling and try again");

Thank you.  However, I get an error message no matter what case I use (Maui, maui or MAUI returns "please check your spelling..."   When the code is working, any of those forms of "Maui" should allow the form to be submitted.

open gen_validatorv4.js
replace :
       if(epos >= 0)
        {
            command = strValidateStr.substring(0, epos);
            cmdvalue = strValidateStr.substr(epos + 1);
        }
        else
        {
            command = strValidateStr;
        }

Open in new window

by :
    if(typeof objValue == "object") {
        command = "regexp";
    }
    else {
        if(epos >= 0)
        {
            command = strValidateStr.substring(0, epos);
            cmdvalue = strValidateStr.substr(epos + 1);
        }
        else
        {
            command = strValidateStr;
        }
    }
 

Open in new window


and use :
frmvalidator.addValidation("captcha",/Maui/i,"Please check your spelling and try again");

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thank you.  I made those changes.  Now, the code in the contact.htm section -- var frmvalidator  = new Validator("contactform");   is no longer performing.

If it makes a difference, the js I am using is gen_validatorv31.js, not gen_validatorv4.js

ddantesAuthor Commented:
I'm hoping there is a simpler way to do this.  Can't we just modify the one line of frmvalidator code to make "Maui" case insensitive?

check here a working version : http://jsfiddle.net/cQfMz/

if you want the input to be exactly maui and don't accept << ssssssmauipppppp >>
use /^maui$/i instead /maui/i
