Need help on Javascript


hello gurus,
i have another one for you. i have this html form that after clicking submit, the data gets validated by an external javascript function_test.js. i programmed it so if function return false, alert window will pop up.

my problem is this. i don't want to display the small javascript window anymore when function returns false, and definitely still like to use the external javascript file. i would like the errors, alerts, or any other messages to be displayed on the browser where i originally submitted the form. could this be done, or am i stuck with the small javascript alert windows?

here's my code scenario:

<html>
.
.
<script> xxxxpoints to my external javascript file.
</script>
.
.
<form method="post" onsubmit=validate(this)>
.
.
.
<input....
</form>
.
.
.
</html>


thanks guys!

i think coding a javascript function with another name in your html page and calling that function instead of theold one shall do the trick for you.

hi vireshwali,
thanks for taking a look at my thread.

do you mean, i code the javascript on the html and basically not put it externally?

i have an external .js file and i'm keeping all of the functions i have in there. is there anything else i could do aside from writing the code on the html? i dont think using tags inside my function file works.

thanks!

have a work around for this also.
put your js function in another .js file and include that file in your html page.
This would do it.
