Hi all,
i have created one simple login form with 5 fields namely username,email id,password,retype password and phone no.i have created alert message for each function,so that when there is an error it displays alert message..
now i have to replace all alert messages with inline validation(displays errors beside textbox)..
kindly tell me how to do it.......
code

<script type="text/javascript">
function checkName(form)
{
var sRealname = form.realname.value;

var isCorrectFormat = oRE.test(sRealname);

if (!isCorrectFormat)
{
alert("Incorrect format.");
textbox.select();
textbox.focus();
return false;
}
else
{
alert("Correct format");
return true;
}

if (sRealName == '')
{
alert('Error: Username cannot be blank!');
form.realname.focus();
return false;
}
