Hi guys,

I seem to have come across a weird issue in internet explorer.
I've been working on doing regular expressions for a register form, and I've checked it in Firefox, and Chrome and it seems to work for both of them but yet it doesn't work for Internext Explorer 6 - 8.

The issue is that the drop down boxes (select fields) dont seem to be recognised for RegEx in I.E. this is causing an issue for me as I want it to work in ALL common web browers as well as keeping the whole form standard.

I've pasted a snippet of code below to show you what I've done.

This one below is the original one which just checks if the field entry is blank

function check(theForm)
{
	var checker;

	//  Select fields alternate test
	var day = theForm.day.value;
	var month = theForm.month.value;
	var year = theForm.year.value;
	var gender = theForm.gender.value;

	// Gets all label and div tag fields into a variable fo testing later
	var age = document.getElementById('userAge');
	var userGender = document.getElementById('userGender');


        if (day == "")
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userAge"> *Date Of birth*: </label>';
		age.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else if (month == "")
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userAge"> *Date Of birth*: </label>';
		age.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else if (year == "")
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userAge"> *Date Of birth*: </label>';
		age.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + ""; // a new variavble is created which is the innerHTML through the changer fields
		adder = '<label class="loginLabel" id="userAge"> Date Of birth: </label>'; // changes the current div tag into the innerHTML field
		age.innerHTML = adder; // changes the innerHTML to equal the adder
	}
	
	if (gender == "")
	{
		var adder = userGender.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userGender"> *Gender*: </label>';
		userGender.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else
	{
		var adder = userGender.innerHTML + ""; // a new variavble is created which is the innerHTML through the changer fields
		adder = '<label class="loginLabel" id="userGender"> Gender: </label>'; // changes the current div tag into the innerHTML field
		userGender.innerHTML = adder; // changes the innerHTML to equal the adder
	}
	
}

This next one is an actual regular expression test using 2 methods which work on all other fields I have in the form (And also I tested them in FF and Chrome)

function check(theForm)
{
	var checker;

	//  Select fields alternate test
	var day = theForm.day.value;
	var month = theForm.month.value;
	var year = theForm.year.value;
	var gender = theForm.gender.value;

	// Gets all label and div tag fields into a variable fo testing later
	var age = document.getElementById('userAge');
	var userGender = document.getElementById('userGender');

        var letterTest = /(^[A-Z|a-z\s]+$)/; // checks to see if the letters are the only entry (or if its blank)
        var numberTest = /([0-9]+$)/; // ensures that there is at least one number in the field

	if (numberTest.test(day) == false)
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userAge"> *Date Of birth*: </label>';
		age.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else if (letterTest.test(month) == false)
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userAge"> *Date Of birth*: </label>';
		age.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else if (numberTest.test(year) == false)
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userAge"> *Date Of birth*: </label>';
		age.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else
	{
		var adder = age.innerHTML + ""; // a new variavble is created which is the innerHTML through the changer fields
		adder = '<label class="loginLabel" id="userAge"> Date Of birth: </label>'; // changes the current div tag into the innerHTML field
		age.innerHTML = adder; // changes the innerHTML to equal the adder
	}
	
	if (letterTest.test(gender) == false)
	{
		var adder = userGender.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<label class="incorrect" id="userGender"> *Gender*: </label>';
		userGender.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else
	{
		var adder = userGender.innerHTML + ""; // a new variavble is created which is the innerHTML through the changer fields
		adder = '<label class="loginLabel" id="userGender"> Gender: </label>'; // changes the current div tag into the innerHTML field
		userGender.innerHTML = adder; // changes the innerHTML to equal the adder
	}
	
}

If you have any Ideas about what I can do to make it work in I.E. I would be most greatful. Also if anyone knows how to do and RegEx on a checkbox that would help me quite a bit too.


Thanks in advance,
Your Freidnly Neighbourhood,

Hey,

I have set the "selected" to

<option selected="selected"> </option>

and the given other options of

<option> January </option>

I haven't done the values yet. However if that is the cause (which I will inform tomorrow about as it is quite late, I thank you and slap myself for stupidity.

Hey man,

Thanks that work 100%
Do you have any idea what to do for a checkbox?

I've used the following:

1. uses regular expressions to test if the value "isChecked" comes into the variable

function check(theForm)
{
	
	var checker;

	// Check box alternate test
	var checkBox = theForm.tacBox.value;

	var myCheckBox = document.getElementById('mustCheck');
	
	var letterTest = /(^[A-Z|a-z\s]+$)/; // checks to see if the letters are the only entry (or if its blank)


	if (letterTest.test(checkBox) == false)
	{
		var adder = myCheckBox.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<div id="incorrect"> ***YOU MUST ACCEPT THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS*** </div>';
		myCheckBox.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;
	}
	else
	{
		var adder = myCheckBox.innerHTML + ""; // a new variavble is created which is the innerHTML through the changer fields
		adder = '<div id="mustCheck"> </div>'; // changes the current div tag into the innerHTML field
		myCheckBox.innerHTML = adder; // changes the innerHTML to equal the adder
	}
}

AND

2. uses the javascript capability of checking if a box is checked through the ID

function check(theForm)
{
	
	var checker;

	var checkbox = document.getElementById("tacBox");

	if (checkbox.checked)
	{
		var adder = myCheckBox.innerHTML + ""; // a new variavble is created which is the innerHTML through the changer fields
		adder = '<div id="mustCheck"> </div>'; // changes the current div tag into the innerHTML field
		myCheckBox.innerHTML = adder; // changes the innerHTML to equal the adder
	}
	else
	{
		var adder = myCheckBox.innerHTML + "";
		adder = '<div id="incorrect"> ***YOU MUST ACCEPT THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS*** </div>';
		myCheckBox.innerHTML = adder;
		checker = false;		
	}
}

Thanks again in advance
