  • dynamic FORM fieldname validation!!

    Hi Guys,

    is there a way to ask if the #FORM.fieldname# exist to proceed with the next one ?

    FYI : StartDateName22 is a dynamic generated textbox

    i am using the following code :

    <cfif not isDefined (#FORM.StartDateName22#) or #FORM.StartDateName22# or EQ "" >
    Elemnt 2,2 is not defined
    Element 2,2 is defined asc: #FORM.StartDateName22#

    Thi appears to relate to Coldfusion, not Javascript.

    Using Javascript you can check if a field exists:-

    <input type="hidden" id = "test99" value="test99" >
    <script type = "text/javascript">
    function checkFieldExists() {
    var fld = document.getElementById("test99");
    if (fld == null)     {
    alert ("Field test99 does not exist");
    else {
    alert ("Field test99 has the value " + fld.value );

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
