Note Front Page Server Extensions are a set of programs that provide access to special Front Page features, such as database processing, form processing, hit counters, and other built-in Front Page components that require server-side processing.You can provide custom validation for your forms in two ways: server-side validation and client-side validation.In addition, this article assumes a general understanding of HTML and Java Script, although a thorough understanding is not required.For more information about HTML and Web scripting, see one or more of the following references.In this table, Element refers to the name of the HTML element for the form field, Type refers to the value of the type attribute for the form field, and Label refers to the text to the left of the form field. Form code updated with name attribute values Now that you have assigned names for the form and form fields, you are ready to start writing the script that handles the validation for the fields. If you are typing the Java Script code in this article manually and receive errors, you should check that all casing is the same as shown in this article.Otherwise, you may want to review JScript Run-Time and Syntax errors.
Use the following table to assign names to all of your form elements.
Knowing the limits of client-side scripting helps you decide whether to use client-side form validation.
This article explains how to provide client-side validation for forms that you create either by hand or by using the form tools within Front Page.
You need a custom function that you can later connect to the form.
For more information about creating a function, see JScript Functions.
