Here is the function to test whether the inut matches an alphanumeric pattern:

function validateAlphaNumericPassword(pwd)
  var re = /^[a-z0-9]+$/i
  return re.test(pwd)

Alphanumeric with hyphen

Sometimes, you may want to allow some characters like hyphen ( - ) in addition to alpha-numeric characters. Here is the validation
