View Full Version : email address validation routine for two addresses

I have an email address routine in js and it checks one email address fine. Problem is I have two email addresses to validate:

form name="myform" onsubmit="return emailCheck(this.email1.value);return emailCheck(this.email2.value);" action="http://my.com/cgi-bin/form2email.pl" method="POST">

The above doesn't go through the routine twice.

This is the email validation routine, but I think the problem is in the way I am calling it:


function emailCheck (emailStr) {

var checkTLD=1;
var knownDomsPat=/^(com|net|org|edu|int|mil|gov|arpa|biz|aero|name|coop|info|pro|museum)$/;
var emailPat=/^(.+)@(.+)$/;
var specialChars="\\(\\)><@,;:\\\\\\\"\\.\\[\\]";
var validChars="\[^\\s" + specialChars + "\]";
var quotedUser="(\"[^\"]*\")";
var ipDomainPat=/^\[(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})\]$/;
var atom=validChars + '+';
var word="(" + atom + "|" + quotedUser + ")";
var userPat=new RegExp("^" + word + "(\\." + word + ")*$");
var domainPat=new RegExp("^" + atom + "(\\." + atom +")*$");
var matchArray=emailStr.match(emailPat);

if (matchArray==null) {
alert("Email address seems incorrect (check @ and .'s)");
return false;
}
var user=matchArray[1];
var domain=matchArray[2];

for (i=0; i<user.length; i++) {
if (user.charCodeAt(i)>127) {
alert("Ths username contains invalid characters.");
return false;
}
}
for (i=0; i<domain.length; i++) {
if (domain.charCodeAt(i)>127) {
alert("Ths domain name contains invalid characters.");
return false;
}
}

if (user.match(userPat)==null) {
alert("The username doesn't seem to be valid.");
return false;
}

var IPArray=domain.match(ipDomainPat);
if (IPArray!=null) {

for (var i=1;i<=4;i++) {
if (IPArray[i]>255) {
alert("Destination IP address is invalid!");
return false;
}
}
return true;
}

var atomPat=new RegExp("^" + atom + "$");
var domArr=domain.split(".");
var len=domArr.length;
for (i=0;i<len;i++) {
if (domArr[i].search(atomPat)==-1) {
alert("The domain name does not seem to be valid.");
return false;
}
}

if (checkTLD && domArr[domArr.length-1].length!=2 &&
domArr[domArr.length-1].search(knownDomsPat)==-1) {
alert("The address must end in a well-known domain or two letter " + "country.");
return false;
}

if (len<2) {
alert("This address is missing a hostname!");
return false;
}

return true;
}

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe try



<form name="myform" onsubmit="return(emailCheck(this.email1.value) && emailCheck(this.email2.value));" action="http://my.com/cgi-bin/form2email.pl" method="POST">


I didn't test this code but the theory should be sound. You want to see if email1 AND email2 are valid and return the result.
