    Need Some Help With Password Validation

    Hey,
    I am looking to have my passwords match when a user fills out this form I have created. However I do not know how to do this.

    Enter the first password and then the second with something completely different, and yet it still accepts it. I don't want that, I want it to reject it if they don't match. Help!

    Here is my code so far:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <title>Form Sample</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize.css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="mystyle.css" />

    <!--[if lt IE 8]>
    <style>
    legend {
    display: block;
    padding: 0;
    padding-top: 30px;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-size: 1.25em;
    color: #FFD98D;
    margin: 0 auto;
    }
    </style>
    <![endif]-->

    </head>
    <body>
    <form id="myform" name="theform" class="group" action="sent.html" method="POST">
    <fieldset id="login" title="Login Info">
    <legend>Log In Info</legend>
    <span id="formerror" class="error"></span>
    <ol>
    <li>
    <label for="myname">Name *</label>
    <input type="text" name="myname" id="myname" title="Please enter your name" autofocus required placeholder="Last, First" />
    </li>
    <li>
    <label for="myemail">Email *</label>
    <input type="email" name="myemail" required id="myemail" autocomplete="off" />
    </li>
    <li>
    <label for="mypassword">Password *</label>
    <input type="password" name="mypassword" required id="mypassword" />
    </li>
    <li>
    <label for="mypasswordconf">Password *</label>
    <input type="password" name="mypasswordconf" required id="mypasswordconf" />
    </li>
    </ol>
    </fieldset>
    <fieldset id="other" class="hidden" title="Other Info">
    <legend>Other</legend>
    <ol>
    <li>
    <label for="mytelephone">Telephone *</label>
    <input type="tel" name="mytelephone" required id="mytelephone" pattern="\d{3}[\-]\d{3}[\-]\d{4}" placeholder="xxx-xxx-xxxx"/>
    </li>
    <li>
    <label for="myaddress">Address *</label>
    <input type="address" name="myaddress" required id="myaddress" placeholder="Street, City, and State" />
    </li>
    <li>
    <label for="myzip">Zip Code *</label>
    <input type="zip" name="myzip" required id="myzip" placeholder="xxxxx"/>
    </li>
    </ol>
    </fieldset>
    <fieldset id="comments" class="hidden" title="Comments">
    <legend>Comments</legend>
    <ol>
    <li>
    <label for="mycomments">Comment</label>
    <textarea name="mycomments" id="mycomments"></textarea>
    </li>
    </ol>
    <button type="submit">send</button>
    </fieldset>
    </form>
    <script>
    $(document).ready(function() {
    $("#myform").validate({
    "rules" : {
    "mypassword": {
    //must be 6 numbers or more
    "minlength" : 6,
    "required" : true },
    "mypasswordconf": {
    //must equal first password input
    "equalTo" : "#mypassword"}
    } //rules
    }); //validate
    }); //document ready
    </script>
    <script>
    $(document).ready(function() {
    $('#myform').submit(function() {
    var abort = false;
    $("div.error").remove();
    $(':input[required]').each(function() {
    //call to input required fields
    if ($(this).val()==='') {
    $(this).after('<div class="error">This is a required field</div>');
    abort = true;
    }
    }); // go through each required value
    if (abort) { return false; } else { return true; }
    })//on submit
    }); // ready

    $('input[placeholder]').blur(function() {
    $("div.error").remove();
    var myPlaceholder = $(this).attr('placeholder');
    var isValid = $(this).val().search(myPattern) >= 0;

    if (!isValid) {
    $(this).focus();
    $(this).after('<div class="error">Entry does not match expected pattern: ' + myPlaceholder + '</div>');
    } // isValid test
    }); // onblur
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    Thanks!

    Testing if two boxes vontain the same, example...
    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <script>
    function checkThis(o){
    	var pat = new RegExp( o.pwd1.value , "g" );
    	return pat.test(o.pwd2.value);
    }
    
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="javascript:;" onsubmit="return checkThis(this);">
      <p>
        <input type="password" name="pwd1" />
        <br />
        <input type="password" name="pwd2" />
    </p>
      <p>
        <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />
    </p>
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>
    if you were to put an alert at the return point you will see the result of matching and non matching field entries.
    --> JavaScript Frameworks like JQuery, Angular, Node <--
    ... and please remember to wrap code with forum BBCode tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
