Hello all,

I am beginner inthe programming , & I am trying to apply validation for different fields of a form, so that a user can get alert messages instantly at the time of mistake as if any form fields are empty or any Invalid values are entered. My validation is not working systematically & properly,
the alert messages hangs the data entering process & some fields does not
throw any alert messages & the process jumps over the remaining empty fields.
Please help me so that the validation works systematically & properly
& errors can be removed , before submitting the form.

Here is my code:-






<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">

function checkName()
{
if (form2.name.value=="")
{
alert("Please enter the Full Name");
document.form2.name.focus();
document.form2.name.select();
return false;
}


if (!isNaN(document.getElementById('name').value))
{
alert("Invalid numeric value entered! Please enter the Valid Name");
document.form2.name.focus();
document.form2.name.select();

return false;
}

return true ;
}


function checkAge()
{

if (form2.age.value=="" )
{
alert("Please enter the Age");
document.form2.age.focus();
document.form2.age.select();
return false;
}


var x = document.form2.age.value;

if(isNaN(x)||x.indexOf(" ")!=-1)
{
alert("The Age entered is not a Numeric value. Please check and try again");
document.form2.age.focus();
document.form2.age.select();
return false;
}


if ( document.form2.age.value > 99 )
{
alert("Age must be numeric & cannot be more than 2 digits");
document.form2.age.focus();
document.form2.age.select();
return false;
}

return true;
}

function checkGender()

return false
}
