Dear Crosstec!

We organise a conference and use e Breezing form to order tickets.

We have special tickets for the presenters quests and the sponsors quest and organisers. They get a promotional code via email (e.g PGUEST002 or SGUEST005 or ORGANISER003) and they have to enter it to a text field (element name: SPECJEGY.

We have validate this field. I would like to create a script which only allows to submit the form when the entered valeu of SPECJEGY text field starts with "PGUEST" or "SGUEST" or "ORGANISER". any other case gives back a message "Invalid promotional code".

Is it possible ? How can I do it?

Thanks in advance

please go to your textfield-Properties-Validation-check Custom and put this:
function ff_SPECJEGY_validation(element, message)
    var string=/^(PGUEST|SGUEST|ORGANISER).*$/
    if (string.test(element.value)) return '';
        if (message=='') message ="invalid promotial code.\n"
        return message;
} // ff_SPECJEGY_validation
Please make sure that SPECJEGY is name of that textfield (not title)

Let me know if you need more help
