    Value has no properties

    Hi There, Folks!

    I'm new on the block! Tried searching for similar errors; couldn't find what I needed. Still, the first question appears real basic.

    In the <HEAD>-section i have this code, below. The first two "IF's" work. But, the search-IF " if((theinput.value.search('^[a-zA-Z0-9]+$',"g")<0))" does not work. Why???

    The error message is: "Error: theinput.value has no properties".

    Can you help, pls??

    I look forward to your replies, thanks!
    Bye

    This is what my experimental <SCRIPT> looks like:
    Code:
    	 <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    	 <!-- 
    	 function ValidateUserID(theinput) {
    		 if(theinput.length>0) {
    			 if(theinput.length<6) {
    				 alert('Your User ID name must have 6 or more characters');
    				 return false;
    			 } 
    			 if((theinput.value.search('^[a-zA-Z0-9]+$',"g")<0)) {
    				 alert('Your User ID may ONLY contain a mix of letters a-z A-Z and/or digits 0-9');
    				 return false;
    			 alert('Exiting true');
    			 return true;
    			 }
    		 } 
    	 }
    	 function PageLoad()
    	 {
    		 document.login['login'].focus();
    	 }
    	 //-->
     </script>
    This is what my <FORM> code looks like:
    Code:
    <form name="login" method="post" action="/login/login.php" onsubmit="return ValidateForm(this)">
     <table cellspacing=4 cellpadding=5 border=1  style="background-color:#FFFFFF;"> 
    	 <p class="qfheader">
    	 <tr>
    		 <td style="background-color:#CCCCCC; font-family:verdana; font-weight:normal; font-size:16px; 
    				 text-align:right;  vertical-align: middle; color:#000000">
    				 <label for="login">
    					 User id: 
    				 </label>
    			 </td>  
    		 <td style="background-color:#CCCCCC; font-family:verdana; font-weight:normal; font-size:16px; 
    				 text-align:left;  vertical-align: middle; color:#000000">
    				 <input type="text" name="login"
    					 onchange="javascript:ValidateUserID(this.value)"
    					 id=login
    					 value="">
    		 </td>
    . . . . etc, etc, ....

    Try
    Code:
    				 <input type="text" name="login"
    					 onchange="ValidateUserID(this)"
    					 id=login
    					 value="">

    To touch up on to what Charles suggested:
    Code:
     function ValidateUserID(theinput) {
    		 if(theinput.value.length>0) {
    			 if(theinput.value.length<6) {
    				 alert('Your User ID name must have 6 or more characters');
    				 return false;
    			 } 
    			 if((theinput.value.search('^[a-zA-Z0-9]+$',"g")<0)) {
    				 alert('Your User ID may ONLY contain a mix of letters a-z A-Z and/or digits 0-9');
    				 return false;
    			 alert('Exiting true');
    			 return true;
    			 }
    		 } 
    	 }

    Both approaches worked. Thanks!

    Hi Vic, Ultimater and Charles.

    Your ideas worked.

    Key for me were the TWO approaches.
    Code:
    Either:
    IF the function ValidateUserID(input) was called by ValidateUserID(this) 
          then the <script> had to use just "input.value".
    Or:
    IF the function ValidateUserID(input) was called by ValidateUserID(this.value) 
          then the <script> had to use just "input".
    There are some other little gems there, Vic. Like the
    - onclick="ValidateUserID(document.getElementById('fred').value);">, and
    - "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd
    I'll try these, too!

    Thanks
