Sounds like JavaScript would be the answer here.  You can use a javascript
function to validate the form before it is even submitted.

Subject: [PHP] help needed with forms


I am using php based forms, which collect information from the client 
and send it in the form a email message to the admin.
I need to start using validation i.e. check whether some field/s  has 
been correctly entered in the from.
My application consists of 2 php pages
1).  info.php    (this page consists of the plain form and the has its 
action parameter set to "send_info.php")
2).  send_info.php  (this forms collects the information that the 
client entered and composes a message and mails it to

So I use headers in the following manner:

The send_info.php code starts like this

if($email =='') {

This takes the user back to the info.php page with all the fields reset.
What I need is that
1).  An alert box must be displayed which tells the user where he went 
2).  Also the data that the user had entered on the form must not be 
reset to blank.

I know this sounds very trivial.
Please help me out.
