but really the lack of comments makes me not even want to look at the code. add comments then we can talk.


?? The java is miniscule, then it's straight HTML. Taking out the Hebrew, it would be so brief comments would be an obstruction to comprehension.

haha - Anyway Primat and a few others made it before I did. Actually, I don't remember double-posting more than 2-3 times. It was spamming that I did.  Wink

As for the code (which is why I am posting in this thread in the first place), I see some simplifications that could be made, like replacing the '== false' constructs with uses of the '!' operator, but that's just a readability issue.

Also, I wonder why you're applying the isNaN function to a string instead of a float or double. However, this is probably just some javascript idiom I'm not aware of.

There are two sketchy things I see about the submit button.
First, that it doesn't specify an action to be taken after verifying the data. This may be confused for being no effect, if the data is valid.
Second, the submit button input tag ends with '/>' instead of '>'. This may be legal, but I'm not sure.


First HTML, then Javascript and then ASP. They(the book and the teacher) told us meanwhile to send it to our email box. And the "submit button" should end with' />'. There are two types of such stuff:
1. <....>.....</....>
or
2.<.................. />

But then again, this is from what I have learned and it isn't much.

Now about the 'isNaN' funtion, you are right. I put a new code with more improvement. I thought that by checking if the field has numbers will be enough, but I forgot that in names there shoulds be: 1234567890-=\`~!@#$%^&*()_+|][';,./?><:"
But that is another story for another code...

For the code, Thanx anyone. You may pillow fight for now.

About The Spam

The amount of the messeges isn't all. It is what you have written in the messeges. And most of your messeges are almost meaningless. Now I stop flamming, just had to take it off my chest....


EDIT: About Bioslayer, comment:
D999 is right, all you need to do is to look in the javascript which is VERY VERY short. If you don't understand about what this page is, you can put it in a notepad and save it as html. You will see a form which you need to fill in. About what? It doesn't really matter...only the "id" and the "name" of the inputs and such are important.

And btw, it will show you hebrew, it is just written in ASCII code.

The error is caused by a uppercase "if" in the check on the password length.
you are also missing a > at the end of the line of
<table align='center' border='0' width='70%'

I will then gladly *spit* some pillows at headheight through the cafe.

Enjoy,

Read Again:

I think <br/> and <hr/> fall in the second option.

EDIT: Not shorthanded, incorrectly written, but it still work.

Maybe it has to do with this thread?
http://uqm.stack.nl/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=offtopic;action=display;num=1076436193

Otherwise I have no idea,  though I think I would have SOME idea considering I am the same age as DJ. (Though from the US of A).
