    Resolved [RESOLVED] User input msg validation

    Hi guys

    I have setup a jQuery way to submit messages by the users. And it works fine. But I want to include a clientside validation on the "msg" being submitted by the user (already coded server side validation).

    What I want to validate is, it shouldn't contain any HTML tags or scripts or anything harmful.

    Any ideas or code bits ?

    Note: I'm very much new to jQuery

    I found that, there's some premade plugins for jQuery to do the validations. But didn't checked those.

    I'm just using the test() method to validate using regex.
    Code:
    var regex=/^[a-zA-Z]$/;
    if(!regex.test($('#username')))
    {
      //failed. show an error and return
      return
    }

    Maybe you could do something with John Resig's HTML Parser to check for any HTML in the text?
