    Hi,

    you will need to "submit" the information (i.e. using <input type="submit" etc.../> button) and then in the form tag use an onsubmit event handler to run the validation functions.

    Hope this helps

    See this:
    HTML Code:
    <!doctype html>
    <html>
    <body>
        <form name="_form" action="#" method="post" onsubmit="return Check()">
            <label>Email ID:</label> <input type="email" name="_email" /> <br/>
            <label>Password:</label> <input type="password" name="_pwd" /> <br/>
            <input type="submit" value="Log in" />
        </form>
        
        <script>
            var Check = function () {
                var eList = ['a@a.com', 'b@b.com', 'v@v.com'];
                var pList = ['aa', 'bb', 'vv'];
            
                var email = document.forms['_form'].elements['_email'].value;
                var pwd = document.forms['_form'].elements['_pwd'].value;
                
                for(i=0; i<eList.length; i++) {
                    if(email == eList[i]) {
                        for(j=0; j<pList.length; j++) {
                            if(pwd == pList[j]) {
                                alert('Correct feed!');
                                return true;
                                break;
                            }
                        }
                    }
                }
                alert('Incorrect feed!');
                return false;
            }
        </script>

    I am tryingn to call the isValidLogin from the
    <input type="button" name="login" id="login" value= "login" class="loginbutton" /><br/>

    I added <input type="button" name="login" id="login" value= "login" class="loginbutton" onclick="isValidLogin" /><br/>
    but it doesn't seem to call the function. Am I missing somthing?

    Thanks,
