Validate A Form Displayed In A Lightbox?

Jan 9, 2011

Just wondering if anyone has ever managed to validate a form that is loaded in a lightbox? I've search everywhere, so it's either really hard and nobody knows or so simple that nobody thinks it's worth mentioning!


I have managed to create a form that is validated using a jquery script. Works fine, when loaded as a regular .html page.


However, when I load the form (from a clickable link) that displays it in a lightbox, all validation disappears! Although the form still displays and submits data.

Is there a special way to validate forms in a lightbox?

Or can anyone recommend a lightbox script/plugin that comes with data validation?

JQuery :: Submitting Form Without Submit Button - Validate - Lightbox ?

Sep 15, 2010

I am pretty comfortable with jQuery and the validation plugin as well.

I am having an issue where:

User clicks a button it opens a lightbox (I am using Fancybox) - a form appears inside the modal. The data is submitted via AJAX and I am trying to validate the form before the form within the lightbox is submitted.

My button with the click handler right now does a GET to a server to send the data. Along with some other JavaScript. What is the best way for me to validate my form within a lightbox, and submit after it validates. Sending AJAX.

JQuery :: Validate Plugin: Message Being Displayed Even For Valid Elements?

Apr 2, 2011

I am calling a custom method to validate adate input element (this element is an array ). Upon validation, a message is displayed against each date input element, even if the others are valid. If one date element is invalid, all other valid date elements too show the message. How do I make sure that the error message is displayed only for the invalid element?

My formelement is defined as such:
<input name="order_date[ ]" size="10" type="text">
Here's the script:
<script type="text/javascript">

Change Form - Output Not Displayed In Login Status

Feb 14, 2010

I am having a particular problem with my Javascript page, which should change the form that the user is at. Need to proofread my code to check for errors? The code does not change the form (Also it does not run the PHP page, or at least does not display its output in the loginStatus div):

<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />
PHP Hardcoded Login Script!
function processLogin(form) {
var user = form.user.value;
var pass = form.pass.value;
var url = "processLogin.php?user=" + user + "&pass=" + pass;

if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
{// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
{// code for IE6, IE5
xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
} .....

Why this is not working? The page running this code can be found at: [URL]
Another page without the signup form (that works) is at:
The login for the pages is:
user: john_doe

Form Validation Within Lightbox Using Prototype?

Jan 12, 2010

I'm not efficient enough at Javascript to change around the lightbox or prototype code. But I was wondering if anyone knew how to validate a form within the lightbox then redirect back to the previous page. I can activate the lightbox but the second I click submit it closes it regardless of any validation.

I can however read the POST data from the original page.

Does any one know an example of how this can be done?

Submit Form Variable To Lightbox

Aug 13, 2010

I need to send form variable to a lightbox. What this page suppose to do is user will insert his ID, click Papar ~Display in English, the page will refresh and his examination result will be output in the lightbox. More information on my test page here: [URL] paste 158756873427 into the form and click Papar. That lightbox popup is a remote file so I can paste mysql query in it. Also its not working actually.

I already set the query manually like this:
PHP Code:
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM exam_data WHERE no_KP='158756873427'"); 

What I need is the form from infopendidikan.php to send its variable to the lightbox remote page resultpopup.php. Also you can click on the query popup on the left menu to see the fixed query. resultpopup.php need to retrieve variable from infopendidikan.php.

Anyway this is infopendidikan.php code:
PHP Code:
//if the "submit"variable does not exist form has not been submitted display initial page
if (!$_POST['submit'])
{ ?> .....
If I can get the result in the lightbox without page refresh that will be more cool. The lightbox I'm using is facebox from [URL].

CoffeeCup Form In LightBox Or Layer?

Dec 27, 2009

I've used CoffeeCup Form Builder to create a nice form for my site and would like to have it open in a lightbox/thickbox, or open in a layer? (If it matters, do have an iFrame on the page, FYI).

I've got LightBox Gone Wild to work nicely, except it won't load the form. If I open the HTML page (directly) the form works fine.

This is the code on the HTML page:

Okay. I used CoffeCup Form Builder for my form and wanted it to open like the examples at their website: [url]. Having it on the page or in a pop-up was okay, but I like the 'LightBox' effect.

Anyway, I wanted to share the code in case others can use it. It uses an iframe that opens in a new layer. You can probably improve on it and change the size, etc., but it's a start. One thing I'm planing is to use the CSS and JS in an external file rather than in the <head>:

Submit Form, Validate Form, Set Cookie, Send Email, Download File

Jul 23, 2005

I have a form built and on the onclick event I validate all of the
fields and then if the form is ok, on the submit event I run a
javascript function to set a cookie and download a file from the
current window.

I have a cgi script provided by my web host to send the contents of the
form through email but they only show me how to use the cgi script to
send email through the submit event of the form.

ie. <form name="downloadform" method="post"
action="/cgi-bin/cgiemail/mailtemp.txt" onSubmit="return

Can I utilize the cgi script/link from my javascript function and still
send the contents of the form through the cgi email??

Can't Get To Validate Form

May 1, 2009

I looked at some of the other post on validation but I still can't figure out what I'm doing wrong to get the JavaScript to validate my form. Maybe some fresh new eyes.

Here is the JavaScript:

var validations = new Array();
// Define which validations to perform. Each array item
// holds the form field to validate, and the validation


I just tried to validate the first name, last name and address for now until I get it to work.

Validate Form For Email

Jul 23, 2005

The following code asks the user to sumbit a name, email address, and some
text for a quotation via a FORM. I have written a javascript function to
evaluate the fields in the form and pop-up a message to tell the user if all
the fields have been fill-out. If the user has missed some information the
form re-displays with red "alerts" indicating where the user have missed the
information while re-populating the information the user has submitted.

May question is, after the user has successfully filled out the form, how
can the submit request be forwarded to another jsp so the information can be
emailed to me. I have written a jsp to accept the request and email it. This
works if I remove the validation code. I am not familiar enough with
javascript to be able to figure this one out. I may be on the wrong track.....
