Number Validation


I need to check whether the user has entered a numeric value or not in a text box using Javascript. What function can be used for this?

Thanks in advance.

you could use isNaN() or the typeof operator.

I would recommend regular expressions, e.g.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. /^-?\d*\.?\d+$/
