Hi,

I have 2 textbox and 2 buttons in my form. Seperatly, Button 1 will validate textbox 1 and Button 2 will validate textbox 2, if they are empty or not.

How can we do it?

Thanks

very basic version but it should get you started:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function validateForm(inputID)
{
	if(document.getElementById(inputID).value == "")
	{
		document.getElementById(inputID + "_error").style.display = "block";
	}
	else
	{
		document.getElementById(inputID + "_error").style.display = "none";
	}
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
	<tr>
		<td style="height:20px;"><div id="txt1_error" style="display:none;">TextBox 1 is blank</div></td>
		<td style="height:20px;"><div id="txt2_error" style="display:none;">TextBox 2 is blank</div></td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td><input type="text" name="txt1" id="txt1" /></td>
		<td><input type="text" name="txt2" id="txt2" /></td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td><input type="button" name="btnValidate1" value="Validate TextBox 1" onclick="validateForm('txt1');" /></td>
		<td><input type="button" name="btnValidate2" value="Validate TextBox 2" onclick="validateForm('txt2');" /></td>
	</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
