there is a name field ok. and it these are the conditions:
the first character should not be space followed by alphanumeric and no special characters allowed.

the above line is very long, i just want one short name for this conditions to display to the user when the user enters wrong characters in the name field

split it up in 2-3 different messages(condition wise) and show appropriate message/s when user gives wrong input.



Hope it helps.

Personally, I like Rohit's answer; however, you could eliminate one of your conditions by simply running String.trim() on the input, especially if you tell them in advance that this is what will happen, eg:
Please enter name (leading/trailing spaces will be ignored)

Also, start with "" instead of null, or your error message will start with "null " - null will be turned into the String "null" when concatenated to a String.
