javascript email validation

4 New Member
Hello, im posting this question because i have zero knowledge on javascrip. I have a script which curently allows users to imput an email address and if the email is not valid it wont allow the submission. Everything works fine except that now there are clients who have a period in their email address and it is rejected. eg. tom.jones@email .com.. im sure its a simple addition to the script not even sure where it might go but here is what i copied and where im assuming it might need to be changed..

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. # Do our error checking
  2.   my $gintErrorCount = 0;
  3.   my $gstrMessage = "";
  5.   # Email Address
  6.   unless ($gstrHash{email} =~ m/^(\w+)\@(\w+)\.(\w{2,4})$/)  {$gintErrorCount ++; $gstrMessage .= "Your email address is not properly formatted.<BR>";}
  8.   # Fix phone variable - client
  9.   $gstrHash{cphone} =~ s/\D//g;
  10.   unless ($gstrHash{cphone} =~ m/^\d{10}$/) {$gintErrorCount ++; $gstrMessage .= "Your contact phone number must be a ten digit number.<BR>";}
  11.   $gstrHash{cphone} =~ s/^([\d]{3}?)([\d]{3}?)([\d]{4}?)$/\($1\)$2-$3/i;   
  13.   # Email Address
  14.   unless ($gstrHash{cemail} =~ m/^(\w+)\@(\w+)\.(\w{2,4})$/)  {$gintErrorCount ++; $gstrMessage .= "Your contact email address is not properly formatted.<BR>";}

I am sorry i am not able to get your requirement clearly. what u are trying to add in that script. you specified that the client has a period in email id. What is that you wnat to mean. I was not able to get ur point at that line. Are u checking for duplication or checking for any time constraint. please mention it clearly. I will try to help u out

That's not JavaScript code. Are you sure this is on the client-side?

Whatever the case is, you just need to make a change to the reg. exp. to allow a . within the email.

I think it's Perl actually.

@EMI, do you want this on the client-side?

Sorry Guys,
yes you are right...i was wrong this is actually perl.
I guess i should post in the proper area..like i mentioned im clueless about this stuff...
Yes this is actually a form that requires whoever goes to the site to imput an email address. Everything works great but since poeple now have a period in the emails..whateve r restrictions have been coded with the email requirements dont allow for periods in the first part of the email (eg, tom.jones@email .com).
I just want to allow periods to be submitted.
Thanks fo rthe replies

I was about to move this thread when I realised that you've already posted in the Perl forum. If you ever need client-side email validation, you can come back to this thread.

Hi, it's possible to append a custom action to a client-side verification of a validation control ? I have a validator summary control that shows (automatically) a message box if the validation of the validators in the page fails; after the user close this message box I have to perform a client-side function (hiding some text) ... it's possible? Thanks!

Hi all, Has anyone been able to write some custom javascript on the onclick event of submit button to do certain things like disable submit button, only submit form once etc. This was a breeze in 1.1 since I could edit the .js file. Now in 2.0 I can no longer do this. Also, my code would have to be called after all client-side validation was done and was successful. Any ideas? TIA!

Hi, I have a form for uploading documents and inserting the data into a mysql db. I would like to validate the form. I have tried a couple of Javascript form validation functions, but it appears that the data goes straight to the processing page, rather than the javascript seeing if data is missing and popping up an alert. I thought it may be because much of the form is populated with data from the db (lists, etc.), but when I leave...
