I request you send me Javascript code for comparing two passwords in two different textboxes

This will work if you have exactly two password fields:

function comparepasswords(){
var A= document.getElementsByTagName('input');
var L= A.length, i= 0,tem,P= [];
tem= A[i++];
if(tem.type.toLowerCase()== 'password')P[P.length]=tem;
if(P[0].value && P[0].value=== P[1].value)return true;
else return false;

Javascript is totally unsuitable for password/logon as the source code can be read by anyone.

Having said that:-

<form name = "myform">
<input type = "text" name = "pwd1" id = "pwd1" size = "12"><br>
<input type = "text" name = "pwd2" id = "pwd2" size = "12"><br>
<input type = "button" value = "Click here to verify password" onclick = "pwdCompare()">

<script type = "text/javascript">

function pwdCompare() {
var p1 = document.myform.pwd1.value;
p1 = p1.replace(/^\s+/g, ""); // strip leading spaces
var p2 = document.myform.pwd2.value;
p2 = p2.replace(/^\s+/g, ""); // strip leading spaces
if ((p1.length < 6) || (p1 != p2)) { // minimum 6 characters
alert ("The two passwords do not match or have too few characters! Try again!");
document.myform.pwd1.value = "";
document.myform.pwd2.value = "";
return false;
else {
alert ("The passwords match!");


All this does is checks that the two passwords match (case sensitive) and have a minimum of 6 characters. You will need further verification if the passwords have to have a minimum number of alpha characters, or some combination of letters/numbers/special characters.
