The one included below was adapted from a project by Diego Perini, and is the most robust I've encountered. :[a-z A-Z\u00a1-\uffff0-9]-*)*[a-z A-Z\u00a1-\uffff0-9] )(? Add the attribute let's you run regex validations against input values. If you, for example, required passwords to contain at least 1 uppercase character, 1 lowercase character, and 1 number, the browser can validate that for you. What new tools do we have these days for form validation? Finally, we'll take a look at Mail Chimp's sign-up form, and provide the same experience with 28× less code. ), browsers can natively validate form inputs and alert users when they're doing it wrong.
It includes the entire j Query library, a third-party form validation plugin, and some custom Mail Chimp code.
In fact, that setup is what inspired this new series about modern form validation. In this series, I'm going to show you two lightweight ways to validate forms on the front end. I'm also going to teach you how to push browser support for these APIs back to IE9 (which provides you with coverage for 99.6% of all web traffic worldwide).
If you want to require a TLD (and you likely do), you can modify the input type will alert users if the supplied value is not a valid URL.
Once again, you should supply a pattern for browsers that don't support this input type.
Most Java Script form validation libraries are large, and often require other libraries like j Query.
