validating rich text field for attachment
Is it possible to validate a rich text field for attachments using javascript? If yes how? Please I've been working on this for more than 2 weeks already[V]... Thanks!!!:D

validateForum() {
 if(document.forumName.inputName.value!="stuff") {
  alert('invalid entries');

<input type="submit" onClick="validateForum();">

Thanks for the code! Unfortunately, it works even if only a string is in the rich text field and not an attachment. Is there a javascript code that specifically validates for attachment/s in a form? Thanks!

I don't know what rich text fields are in relation to web pages. Do you mean if an input box of type equal to 'file' has a value in it? If so then:

<form name="frmUpload" onsubmit="validateForm();">
<input type="file" name="txtFile">
<input type="submit">
function validateForm()
  if (document.frmUpload.txtFile.value = "")
    alert("You have not selected a file to upload.");
    return false;
  return true;
