I have a form that I am checking to see if a check box is checked. If it is not checked an alert pops up with an error message and when I click OK It checks the check box.

This is very weird. Code below

function isNumeric(elem, helperMsg){
var numericExpression = /^[0-9]+$/;
if(elem.value.match(numericExpression)){
return true;
}else{
alert(helperMsg);
elem.focus();
return false;
}
}
function ischecked(elem, helperMsg){
if(elem.checked == true){
return true;
}else{
alert(helperMsg);
elem.focus();
return false;

}
}
//document.myform.box1.checked == false
function chkFormmt(frm){
if(isNumeric(frm.homevalue, "Please enter a number for your Home Value")){
if(isNumeric(frm.numautos, "Please enter a number for your number of Vehicles")){
if(isNumeric(frm.avgvalue, "Please enter a number for your average vehicle value")){
if(ischecked(frm.checkbox, "You must check that you have read the disclamer")){
return true;
}
}
}
}
alert("here");
return false;
}

M#$%@r$&%@NG dreamweaver and I hate lable tags

Broken code below

<label><br>
<input type="checkbox" name="checkbox23" id="checkbox23">
<span class="style3"> I have read the Disclamer</span><br>
<input name="button" id="button" value="Recalculate" type="submit">
</label>
<br>
</form>

Fixed code

<label><br>
<input type="checkbox" name="checkbox23" id="checkbox23">
</label>
<span class="style3"> I have read the Disclamer</span><br>
<input name="button" id="button" value="Recalculate" type="submit">
<br>
</form>

Maybe this quick example can help you.

var numValue = /^\d{1,3}[\,]\d{3}$/;
var numOfCar = /^d{1,2}$/;

  if ( !numValue.test(form.hV.value )) { 

  mfields[mfields.length] = 'Please enter the price value of your house! On this following format-\n(eg. 1,000).\n'; }

if ( !numOfCar.test( form.nV.value )) { mfields[mfields.length] = 'Please enter the number of your vehicle! With a maximun digits\' of 2 or less.\n' }

if ( !numValue.test(form.vV.value )) {
