asp.net provides a validation controls....

you can use your custom control , RegularExpressing control...

it works on client side..

put this code in the .aspx page...

rest will be okey....

<form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Enter Email Address"></asp:Label>
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBoxEmail" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator1" runat="server" 
            ControlToValidate="TextBoxEmail" Display="Dynamic" 
            ErrorMessage="Please Enter Email Address"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
        <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator1" runat="server" 
            ControlToValidate="TextBoxEmail" Display="Dynamic" 
            ErrorMessage="Please Enter Valid Email Address" 
            ValidationExpression="\w+([-+.']\w+)*@\w+([-.]\w+)*\.\w+([-.]\w+)*"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
        <br />
        <asp:Button ID="ButtonSubmit" runat="server" Text="Submit" />
    
    </div>
    </form>

Hope it helps;;

There is an "OnClientClick" attribute for your button. That is where you would put a call to a javascript validation function. Your button control in the aspx page would look something like this:

<asp:Button ID="mybutton" runat="server" onClientClick="return echeck(document.getElementById('txt_email').value);" />

This assumes the ClientID of the textbox you want to validate as an email address is "txt_email". Also, not sure if it was just a copy/paste issue, but it looks like you have too many <script> tags and have your js function repeated.

The validation controls dnanetwork mentioned are also worth checking out. However, they do have browser compatability issues and limitations that JS validation doesn't. It is good to have both in your arsenal.

Error first - do not nest script blocks

<script language = "javascript">
  function echeck(str) {
		var at="@"
		var dot="."
		var lat=str.indexOf(at)
		var lstr=str.length
		var ldot=str.indexOf(dot)
		if (str.indexOf(at)==-1){
		   alert("Invalid E-mail ID")
		   return false
		}

		if (str.indexOf(at)==-1 || str.indexOf(at)==0 || str.indexOf(at)==lstr){
		   alert("Invalid E-mail ID")
		   return false
		}

		if (str.indexOf(dot)==-1 || str.indexOf(dot)==0 || str.indexOf(dot)==lstr){
		    alert("Invalid E-mail ID")
		    return false
		}

		 if (str.indexOf(at,(lat+1))!=-1){
		    alert("Invalid E-mail ID")
		    return false
		 }

		 if (str.substring(lat-1,lat)==dot || str.substring(lat+1,lat+2)==dot){
		    alert("Invalid E-mail ID")
		    return false
		 }

		 if (str.indexOf(dot,(lat+2))==-1){
		    alert("Invalid E-mail ID")
		    return false
		 }
		
		 if (str.indexOf(" ")!=-1){
		    alert("Invalid E-mail ID")
		    return false
		 }

 		 return true				}
</script>

Error 2nd: echeck() function need an argument.

protected void btnvalidate_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
   txtemail.Attributes.Add("Onclick", "javascript<b></b>:echeck('some@aa.com');");
    }
