    Error Checking


    I'm having trouble with adding error checking/trapping procedures to my web-based
    application. For example, if the user omits necessary information, my scripts
    should catch this omission and prompt the user for the omitted data. Invalid
    data submissions should also be detected by the scripts. My error checking/trapping
    procedures should prevent cryptic ODBC error messages from being displayed
    to the user. Does anyone know anything about this?

    I'm assuming your talking about catching errors before submitting an ASP
    to the server. Try a validation routine on the form's "onsubmit" method.
    If an error is found, you can use an alert/msgbox to warn the user, then
    return "False" from the routine to keep the page from being submitted. Hope
    this helps.

    I'll give it a shot. Thanks a lot.

    Your best bet is to perform client side error checking using javascript when
    the form is submitted, this way you can trap most errors (i.e blank fields
    wrong data types etc) before the data is returned to the server and your
    SQL is run.

    an example of such can be found at one of the sites I wrote www.upccorp.com
    - goto to the subscribe / new subscription and look at the code.

    Hope this helps
