Hello everyone,

I am new in this field of programming field and am stuck in this simple problem. I have made a simple form with the function to take input as numbers only. however, it only takes positive numbers as input but does not cater negative values. I have used the function from one of the posts. Also I need to use the data input by user as the input value in another function query () but do not have idea about how to do it. If someone could help me in this matter, please help. Thanking you in advance..

<html>
<head>
<script>
function query() {
window.location.assign("http://localhost:8080/geoserver/wfs?VERSION=1.1.0&REQUEST=GetFeature&SERVICE=WFS&TYPENAME=tasmania_state_boundaries&crs=EPSG:4326&BBOX=UX.val,UY.val,LX.val,LY.val")
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<script>
function validate(evt) {
var theEvent = evt || window.event;
var key = theEvent.keyCode || theEvent.which;
key = String.fromCharCode( key );
var regex = /[0-9]|\./;
if( !regex.test(key) ) {
theEvent.returnValue = false;
if(theEvent.preventDefault) theEvent.preventDefault();
}
}
</script>
<p> Bounding Box </p>
<form>
Upper Left X Co-ordinate: <input type="text" onkeypress="validate(event)" name="UX"/>
Upper Left Y Co-ordinate: <input type="text" onkeypress="validate(event)" name="UY"><br/>
Lower Right X Co-ordinate: <input type="text" onkeypress="validate(event)" name="LX">
Lower Right Y Co-ordinate: <input type="text" onkeypress="validate(event)" name="LY"><br/>
<input type="button" name="Query" value="Query" onclick="query()">
</form>
</html>

Hi Punit,

please replace with . and it will take negative values also.

Happy Coding :-)
