  1. Apr 23, 2012 #1
    Javascript is in an external file liked by this:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="myscript.js"></script>
    in the head tag

    i have
    <form name="myform" action="" method="POST" onSumbit="return validateForms()">
    and some form stuff and then:
    <input type="submit" value="Submit" onclick="calculate()" />

    in the javascript function i have this,


    function validateForms(){
    alert("form will be checked");

    var x=document.forms[myform]["firstname"].va…
    if (x==null || x==""){
    alert("First name must be filled out");
    return false;
    }
    }

    WHY THE HECK IS THIS NOT WORKING!
