Hi all
I get this message: Can't have 'break' outside of loop with this code to validate that the fields have been entered.
How do I get rid of this message? Thank you

<script type="text/javascript">
  function validate_affil(){
  	var v =  true;
  			if( $.trim($(this).val()) == '' ){
  				alert('The fields marked (*) are required')
  				v = false;
  	return v;

<div class="SignupForm" class="width:100%;">
<form onsubmit='return validate_affil();' action="signup.php" method="post" style="border:0px solid;color:black;" id="icpsignup8855">

<fieldset style="border:0px;">
