  1. Here, above we show you an example in JavaScript.
  2. First, we here create a basic structure of HTML. For this, we use HTML, head, title, and body with a script tag. We hope you know about the basic structure of HTML and which HTML tag is used for which concept.
  3. Now, when we look inside the body tag. Here, we see some headings tags and a script tag. Heading tag again is a concept of HTML, whereas script relates to JavaScript.
  4. JavaScript is written always inside the script tag. Where the script is a paired tag so it also has a closing tag. Now inside these script tags, we write our JavaScript code.
  5. Here, as we see that we create a validation form in which we create a field for the user name with a button to submit.
  6. After that we write our JavaScript codes. In which we see that when our username is null means when there is nothing to submit then our codes will show an error whereas on the other side when everything is ok means properly filled then it will redirect the user to the next page that is his/her dashboard.
  7. Now, another validation used on username is of minimum and maximum characters. From the above codes, we understand that our codes must lie between 3 to 25 characters. If this validation is not fulfilled then this will show an error that is of username length.
  8. One thing to note here is that we did not redirect the users to another page on successful submission.

At last, in conclusion, here we can say that with this article’s help we can understand how to validate username in JavaScript.
