View Full Version : Document Object Model?

07-07-2006, 01:10 PM
I have an internet form with many input boxes and I need to check most of them to see if they're numeric.

I have written an isnumeric function and I realise I could type a line such as

If (IsNumeric(document.getElementById( TagName ).value)) {
return true
return false

for each one individually to test, but since there are hundreds of fields, I was wondering if there was an easier way of doing this

Is there any way of looping through the elements (each input box) on my form?

Any example code would be a great help.

Many Thanks

var inputs = document.forms[0].getElementsByTagName("input");
for (i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {
if(inputs[i].type == "text") if(IsNumeric(inputs[i].value))
alert("input #" + i + " is numeric");
// false statement below
