You can use the javascript test method. This method can be used to test for a match in a string. It returns true (match) or false (no match).

<input type="text" id="zip" onkeyup="isValid()" /><br/>
<span id="result"></span>

function isValid(){
   var zip = document.getElementById('zip');
   var result = document.getElementById('result');
   var isValidZip = /(^\d{9}$)|(^\d{5}-\d{4}$)/.test(zip.value);
   if (isValidZip) { 
    result.innerHTML = "Valid";
   } else {
    result.innerHTML = "Not Valid";

Thank you.
