Javascript Validation Scripts

OWS supports comprehensive validation utilities in simple way. All it requires is a SPAN Tag having attributes as listed.

  • id - An unique identifier for SPAN
  • controltovalidate - Control ID that is required validation
  • errormessage - Error message to display for validation fails
  • display - Kind of display either Dynamic or None
  • evaluationfunction - Name the type of validation to perform. OWS supports the following validation types
    • CompareValidatorEvaluateIsValid
    • CustomValidatorEvaluateIsValid
    • RegularExpressionValidatorEvaluateIsValid
    • RequiredFieldValidatorEvaluateIsValid
    • RangeValidatorEvaluateIsValid
  • style - Style of text to display like color, display style, font
  • type - Datatype of input value. Refer below for list of datatypes
  • initialvalue - Tells what is the initial value set to control. Then validator bypasses control initial value.
  • minimumvalue - Requires in Range Validation to set minimum value for range
  • maximumvalue - Requires in Range Validation to set maximum value for range
  • validationexpression - Requires in RegularExpression Validation to validate the structure (mask) of input



The available data types for OWS validations are:

  • Integer
  • Double
  • Currency
  • Date

Other than above type is converted to String. So be specific to mention TYPE in SPAN for every validation.


E.g:                                 <span id="vTextValid" 
                                            minimumvalue = "0"  maximumvalue = "15" 
                                            style="display: none; color: red;">
