You will have to do your own work and learn about pattern matching regexes then read the relevant RFCs to determine what constitutes a valid URL. This snippet basically shows you how you do it but the only valid URL is

<head> <script> function check(url) { if (url.match("(http|ftp)://") ) { return 1; } else { alert(url+" is not a valid URL\nPlease enter a valid one") my_form.url.value = 'http://'; return 0; } } function check_fields(form) { // check your form fields here alert("You need to revalidate server side! use Perl;"); return 1; } </script> </head> <body> <form name="my_form" method=GET action="/do/this/stuff.cgi" onSubmit=" +check_fields(my_form)"> <p><input type="text" name="url" size=25 maxlength=100 value="http://" + onMouseOut="check(url.value)"> <p><input type="submit" value="Stumbit"> </form> </body> </html>

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
