    Validate Hidden Field

    Hi all,

    Have a page that will display a list of subject lines if there are any defined. I also have a next button that acts as a submit button. I am trying to check to make sure a user has defined at least one subject line before moving on. The issue I am having is checking for the subjectkey which is a hidden field.

    Any ideas?

    Here is the JS I am trying to use:

    function doSubmit(){
    var f = document.forms[0];
    if (f.Subject.value == ''){
    alert('You must provide at least one subject line.');
    return false;
    }

    //submit the form
    f.submit();
    }

    Subject is the hidden field. I am using coldfusion and looping over a query to check for the subjectkey.

    Thanks in advance,
    GuyIntn

    Heya,

    That code actually works fine for me on IE6. Is there something else in your page, perhaps, that's getting in the way?

    I actually got it to work. Below is the complete function.

    function doSubmit(){
    var f = document.forms[0];
    if ((#getSubjectLines.RecordCount# == 0) && (f.Mode.value == 'Next')){
    alert('You must add at least one subject line');
    return true;
    }
    //submit the form
    f.submit();
    }
