I'm curious, when creating a form whose action calls a php script for processing the data, does the onSubmit() javascript validation happen before the php script is called?

Generally, yes it does. Since javascript is a client side language, it is all done before it even gets to the PHP program.

Thanks, Renegade. I thought that was the case, but I wanted to be sure. Smiling

Of - Course, There is no doubt, because as we submit the form with data we perform some Validation through Regular Expression or java script validation concept, on client side.
