The Validator.js file is to be included in your HTML, ASP, JSP, or PHP pages. It's a client-side validation file and listed below are the methods that a programmer can call to validate certain data. Note that I will be adding a e-mail validation method in the coming days. There are other methods in the file that can validate certain pieces of data ex: day, month, year. Also there are error handling methods that I will be taking out soon in another version and letting the webpage developer handle the error in their own liking.

To include this file just copy and paste this code.

    <Script language="JavaScript" src="../Validator.js"></Script>

Just make sure the file is in the same directory as your webpage.

Methods Purpose

ValidatePhoneNumber(num) Validates an American style phone number in
or XXXXXXXXXX formats.

ValidateTime(time, format) Validates the time in HH:MM format. Supports
both Standard (1) or Military (2) time formats.

by using this format HH:MM:SS.

(1), can be MMDDYY, MM/DD/YY,
international format (2) has YYYY-MM-DD

CalculateAge(birthdate) Calculates an age return a number of years, months, or days depending on how old the person is. If older than one year the age format will be in years, if older than 1 month but less than one year the format will be in months. If born or less than one month the format will be in days. Currently handles MM/DD/YYYY or MMDDYYYY formats. Use the ValidateDate method to make sure the user input is valid before using the CalculateAge method to ensure a valid birthdate and age.
