The checkValidity() Method

<input id="id1" type="number" min="100" max="300" required>
<button onclick="myFunction()">OK</button>

<p id="demo"></p>

<script>
function myFunction() {
    var inpObj = document.getElementById("id1");
    if (inpObj.checkValidity() == false) {
        document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = inpObj.validationMessage;

Validity Properties

The validity property of an input element contains a number of properties related to the validity of data:

Property Description
customError Set to true, if a custom validity message is set.
patternMismatch Set to true, if an element's value does not match its pattern attribute.
rangeOverflow Set to true, if an element's value is greater than its max attribute.
rangeUnderflow Set to true, if an element's value is less than its min attribute.
stepMismatch Set to true, if an element's value is invalid per its step attribute.
tooLong Set to true, if an element's value exceeds its maxLength attribute.
typeMismatch Set to true, if an element's value is invalid per its type attribute.
valueMissing Set to true, if an element (with a required attribute) has no value.
valid Set to true, if an element's value is valid.

Examples

If the number in an input field is greater than 100 (the input's max attribute), display a message:

The rangeOverflow Property

<input id="id1" type="number" max="100">
<button onclick="myFunction()">OK</button>

<p id="demo"></p>

<script>
function myFunction() {
    var txt = "";
    if (document.getElementById("id1").validity.rangeOverflow) {
       txt = "Value too large";
    }
    document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = txt;
}
</script>
