Java script validations



    We are using both server side and client side validations in the application.


    Scenario 1:

    The application should display a error message on entering alphabets and clicking on Save button.


    This is a client side validation message.


    Scenario 2:

    The application should displays a error message on entering more than 5 digits and clicking on Save.


    Here, client server validation message is displayed.



    I am not able to automate the scenario involving client side validations. The script on playing back, bypasses the client side side validations. (i.e the script saves the data with alphabets in scenario 1)

  • You need to add an event with save button named onclientClick =" return JavascriptMethodName()"

    within the method you need to count alphabet. if count is greater that 5 then you alert the message and return false, otherwise return true. It is now working.

  • Below code will help you to check those two conditions

    function doSomething(e) {
            if (e.keyCode > 64 && e.keyCode < 91) {
                alert('Please enter character other than alphabet');
                return false;
        function checkLength(a) {
            if (a.length > 5) {
                alert('Please enter maximum of 5 characters');
                return false;

  • You need to set onclick attributes of the button like

    btnSave.Attributes.Add("onclick","return somefunction();");
