i just got my form working the way i want, but for w/e reason after i hit submit it wont send, it merely does my form validation and then stops and reselects the password field

<head><script type="text/javascript">function validate_required(field,alerttxt){	with (field)  	{  		if (value==null||value=="")    	{    		alert(alerttxt);return false;    	}  		else    	{    		return true;    	}  	}}function validate_form(thisform){with (thisform)  {   	if (validate_required(email,"Please enter your email.")==false)  		{  			email.focus();  		}   else (validate_required(password,"Please enter a password.")==false)   		{   			password.focus();   		}  	return false;  }}</script></head>

in the form action itself ive got the action linked to a cgi file where it should b routed to an email address, but as far as i can tell, its not sendingany suggestions?

Your validate_form function has two problems I think.1. The last line of your with {} block causes it to return false, every time, no matter what. This halts the submission, and that's the big problem.2. else (validate_required . . . I think this was supposed to be else if

ok, i changed it to else if and it works out pretty well, now ive got another issuewhen the last line sez return false, the script will stop after one of the first 2 if's conditions r met, which is what i wanthowever, if neither condition is met, it still wont send the form on to the cgi file that its linked toif the line instead is return true, it will send it on to the cgi, but it will do this even if one of the if conditions r metideas?i wish i understood this better
