    Validating 8 form fields with Javascript

    Hi all,

    I know this has probably been covered before ...

    I need to validate 8 seperate inputs in an HTML form using JS. I think I have got my regular expressions sorted I just need to bolt them to getElementById function. This is where I am having a brain freeze. Can anyone help me out, the first thing to validate is a 5 digit number between 0 and 99999 and not 00000

    Oh and I would like to alert to errors not with alert boxes but with a message on the page

    Perhaps a bit of code for others to look at can help...
    --> 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...

    /* validate Date Date */
    function validateDate() {
    var z = document.getElementById('Date').value;
    if (/^\d{4}[\/\-](0?[1-9]|1[012])[\/\-](0?[1-9]|[12][0-9]|3[01])$/) return true;

    else {
    document.getElementById('Date').value= "";
    setTimeout(document.getElementById('Date').focus, 50);
    return false;
