    Word game

    Hello again,

    I just wanted to thank all the people on here who have been helping me with JavaScript. I just had one more question.. Here is a part of the code so far.

    function processGuess(){
    var newLetters = /^[^A-Za-z]$/;
    var lastLetters = document.getElementById("putGuessHere");
    var finalGuess = lastLetters.value.toLowerCase();
    if (newLetters.test(finalGuess)) {
    document.getElementById("noNumbers").innerHTML = "you have to put in letters";
    else if (wrongGuesses == finalGuess) {
    alert("you already guessed that letter")
    clearTimeout (guessTimeout);
    guessTimeout = setTimeout("outOfTime();" , 5000);

    <body onresize="setImageSize()">
    <form action="">
    <input type="button" id="newGame" value="Click Here To Start Game!" onclick="startGame();">
    <img id="thePicture" border="0" src="Images/Hangman0.jpg" width="300" height="300" alt="The hangman image">
    Type Your Next Guess Here:
    <input type="text" id="putGuessHere">
    <input type="button" id="checkGuess" value="Check my Guess!" onclick="processGuess();">

    <p id="secretWordDisplay" style="font-size:32pt;">
    Wrong Guesses:
    <p id="wrongGuesses" style="font-size:32pt;">
    <p id="noNumbers" style="font-size:32pt;">
    <p id="bestScore">
    This web page has been tested in LIST THE BROWSER(S) HERE!!!!!

    basically I have most of it working.. so far what happens is when the game starts a user chooses a word. for example "hello". After he/she types that in it becomes **** stars. The problem that i'm having is when the user inputs a letter for example "h" in the guess field and presses the guess button nothing happens. and I also need it to need the wrong guesses to go into a different paragraph or field. If anyone could help me with this I would really appreciate it. Thanks again!!

    Lightbulb Consider this ...

    If you do a searc of this forum with 'hangman'
    you can see a bunch of different examples on how to
    create and solve your particular problem.

    Compare your code to those. You might come up with an improved version.

    Good Luck!
