Validating on submit - Xxxchat gratui

The event handler on the checkbox then toggles the error message.

So, if the user enters ‘01234’ we should see an error message that would instruct the user about what type of data is valid for this field.

Some, but not all, browsers will recognise and enforce this: The advantage of the HTML5 form validation is that it happens before our Java Script is called, displays instructions and points the user to the relevant element.

Here you can see screen captures from Firefox and Chrome: Text alert messages are generated entirely by the browser and will even translate automatically into different languages - something that would be almost impossible using just Java Script.

The advantage for the user is that it's obvious whick element is causing the problem and there's no alert window that needs to be clicked away.

At time of writing Safari does not enforce input fields.

Basically you don't want the form to be submitted unless this is checked.

Using vanilla Java Script we can prevent form submission as follows: All this does is confirm before submitting the form that the checkbox is checked.You need to check the The block of Java Script below the form is assigning our custom error message to the checkbox when the page loads.We know that the checkbox is unchecked by default so we need to tell the browser what message to display.and then about 4 of these: Uncaught Type Error: Cannot read property 'add Event Listener' of null(…) Anyways, just thought I'd see if you knew why.Anyways, may just switch over to a wp plugin, but thought I'd try to sharpen up my development skills a little lol Cheers! They will be disabled when the form input are invalid to prevent the valid form from multiple submissions.
