Get the files

You can download a zip file and extract it

OR

if you use a version control client you can checkout the sources of the project. It will make it easier to keep the files up to date.


Git clone

Checkout sources with git client.
The following commands create a directory ahpwcheck below webroot and put all files there:

cd [webroot-directory]/[install-dir]/
git clone https://github.com/axelhahn/ahpwcheck.git [optional-name-of-subdir]

Leaving [optional-name-of-subdir] empty will create a subdir named "ahpwcheck"

			new password:
			<input type="password" id="ePassword">
			(...)
		</form>
		(...)
	</body>
</html>

Add class to your website


The following codesnippet shows the most simple steps to integrate a basic check into your website.

  • add the javascript file
  • add css
  • create a div for output
  • initialize password check

This is a basic example.

<html>
	<head>
		(...)
		<!-- step 1: add the javascript file -->
		<script src="/javascript/ahpwcheck.class.js"></script>
		(...)
		<!-- step 2: add css -->
		<style>
			#outpwcheck{border: 1px solid #ddd; padding: 0.3em 1em;}
			#outpwcheck .divCheck{float: left; margin-right: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em; border: 0px solid #ccc; border-left: 1em solid #ccc; padding: 0.1em 0.5em; }
			#outpwcheck .divCheck.checkok{background:#cfc; border-left-color: #080; color:#040}
		</style>
		(...)
	</head>
	<body>
		(...)
		<form>
			new password:
			<input type="password" id="ePassword">
			(...)
		</form>
		
		<!-- step 3: create a div element with an id as placeholder -->
		<div id="outpwcheck"></div>
		
		(...)
		
		<!-- step 4: init check - bind password field an define output -->
		<script>
			var oPwCheck = new ahpwcheck();
			oPwCheck.watch('ePassword', 'outpwcheck');
		</script>
	</body>
</html>
