I have this combination " DE55680501010022061234 "
In this combination, first two letter is " DE " and followed by 20 numbers, and total of 22 length. How to check this format combination using JavaScript.

Is it always going to be DE<20 numbers> or first two characters might change?

Either use Regex or make a piece of code to do it.

It is expected that you would attempt to do what you need and share the code you have tried with the question. Having said that, here is something you can make use of:

You can choose from either regex method or non-regex method from following code.

function Validate() {
           var inputString = 'DE55680501010022061234';
           // using regex
           var regEx = /DE\d{20}$/;
           if (regEx.test(inputString) == false) {
               alert('Not right!')

           // without regex
           if (inputString.length != 22) {
                alert('Not right!')

           if (inputString.charCodeAt(0) != 68 || inputString.charCodeAt(1) != 69) {
               // not D or E
               alert('Not right!')

           for (var i = 2; i < 22; i++) {
               if (!(inputString.charCodeAt(i) > 47 && inputString.charCodeAt(i) < 58)) {
                   alert('Not right!')

5d, but something bad happened to your code formatting...

Ah, fixed it. Thanks.

thank you very much.. got the answer :)
Try with below code:
function myFunction() {
    var str = "DE55680501010022061234";
    var pattern = /^DE[0-9]{20}$/g;
	if(str.match(pattern) == null)
