ValidityState.badInput

The read-only property ValidityState.badInput indicates if the user has provided input that the browser is unable to convert. For example, if you have a number input element whose content is a string. Note: While this is unsupported in Internet Explorer, any non-numeric value will be dismissed from the field if it is a number input.

Example

<input type="number" id="age">
var input = document.getElementById("age");
if (input.validity.badInput) {
  console.log("Bad input detected…");
} else {
  console.log("Content of input ok.");
}
