Validatio is skipped

Hi,

I have a form that I have validation on but the validation is never validated it is skipped:

<form action="<%=MM_editAction%>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="form1" id="form1" onSubmit="<%=pau.submitCode()%>;return document.MM_returnValue;WAValidateRQ(document.form1.DocumentReference,'- Document Reference is required',document.form1.DocumentReference,0,false,'text');WAValidateRQ(document.form1.ValidFrom,'- Valid From Date is required',document.form1.ValidFrom,0,false,'text');WAValidateRQ(document.form1.ValidTo,'- Valid To Date is required',document.form1.ValidTo,0,false,'text');WAValidateRQ(document.form1.DocumentType,'- Document Type is required',document.form1.DocumentType,0,true,'select');WAAlertErrors('The following errors were found','Correct invalid entries to continue',true,false,false);return document.MM_returnValue">

Any ideas?

Is it possible to email the page - by the way I'm using Pure ASP on the this page.

Delete the first instance of: "return document.MM_returnValue;" that is causing the validation code to not run.

Thanks Ray for your reply, I tried removing the "return document.MM_returnValue;" but still the validation is skipped.

Do you have a sample url? If you look at the javascript errors are there any errors on the page? Please post the code as it looks after you removed that code.

I have the error displayed as: 'options' is null or not an object.

and the line highlighted:

function WAFV_GetValueFromInputType(formElement,inputType,trimWhite) {
var value="";
if (inputType == "select") {
if (formElement.selectedIndex != -1 && formElement.options[formElement.selectedIndex].value && formElement.options[formElement.selectedIndex].value != "") {
value = formElement.options[formElement.selectedIndex].value;
}
}

The actual line highlighted is:

if (formElement.selectedIndex != -1 && formElement.options[formElement.selectedIndex].value && formElement.options[formElement.selectedIndex].value != "") {

Thanks,

Do you have a URL where I can view the errors? This sounds like it could be a bad form element name, repeated name, or an empty select list?

Ray,

You are correct its to do with the select field, if I remove validation the form validates correctly, at present I have it validating as required:

WAValidateRQ(document.forms[0].DocumentType,'- Document Type is required',document.forms[0].DocumentType,0,true,'select')

How else can I check that the user has selected a value from the select field? I would like to select any option except the first?

Thanks

What did you name the select field? Did it have options in it? Do you have anything else on the page with the same name? It should be possible to validate the select field but it is hard for me to diagnose what was wrong with it without looking at the page.
