onChange - the onchange event occurs when a control loses the input focus and its value has been modified since gaining focus. This attribute applies to the following elements: INPUT, SELECT, and TEXTAREA.

No, it needs to be placed inside forward slashes to be considered as a regular expression. Of course, if you place them inside quotes, you need to explicitly use the RegExp() constructor.

That regex won't work. Try something like:

I want to add a javascript in the jsp form for the form validation of numbers in the pincode text area.I know it's easy but just not clicking :(.Any help would be appreciated.

This javascript is giving an error

function checkpincode(elem,helperMsg)
{
	var numericExpression=[0-9];
	if(elem.value.match(numericExpression))
	{
		return true;
	}
	else
	{
		alert(helperMsg);
		elem.focus();
		return false;
	}
	
}

The page is giving an error "undefined is null or not an object".Perhaps i need to provide an action path for the checkpincode() javascript.But i don't know where.Or there might be some other reason.

No, it needs to be placed inside forward slashes to be considered as a regular expression. Of course, if you place them inside quotes, you need to explicitly use the RegExp() constructor.

That regex won't work. Try something like:

// This restricts the pin code to only digits with at least one
// digit required.
/^[0-9]+$/.test(txtField.value)
