Step 1.Make a HTML file and define markup, scripting and styling

We make a HTML file and save it with a name detect_url.html

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function check_url()
{
 var regex = /https?:\/\/[\-A-Za-z0-9+&@#\/%?=~_|$!:,.;]*/g;
 if($('#text').val().match(regex))
 {
  $("#link_label").html("Your Text Contains Link");
 }
}
</script>
<style>
body
{
 text-align:center;
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 font-family:helvetica;
 background-color:#81F7BE;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:995px;
}
#text
{
 width:300px;
 height:150px;
 padding:10px;
 font-size:16px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">

<div id="text_div">
 <textarea id="text" onkeyup="check_url()"; placeholder="Enter Text With URL To Detect"></textarea>
 <p id="link_label"></p>
</div>

</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we create a textarea for user to enter text it call check_url() function in every keyup event and in check_url() function we create a regular expression to detect the URL and then we get the text from textarea and match it with regular expression and if URL is present in the text it will display error.You may also like Extract URL Data Like Facebook Using jQuery.
