I am not so experienced in js and as such I have this question;Here is some code:

$(function() {    $('.error').hide();    $(".button").click(function() {		 $('.error').hide(); 	 	    var name = $("input#name").val(); 	    if (name == "") { 	  $("label#name_error").show(); 	  $("input#name").focus(); 	  return false;     }            	  // validate and process form here    });  });

Why the if statement above has a "return false" statement in it.Is there a difference in the false statement between PHP and JS.

Return false returns the boolean "false" when the function is executed. Since this is a click event, that means that the default actions that clicking causes shouldn't occur. It's the same as in PHP.
