JQuery :: Validate - Validation Plugin - How Not Validate Field Already Filled
Aug 20, 2010
I have a form (form1) to register with the fields: user, email, password being validated normally.
Have a second form (Form2) to the user update the data registered in form1, and the fields user, email, password is already populated with data from the database, the email field I use the remote validation, and as the field already has been completed and read always says that this email already exists, how do I create a rule or method so that when the field is already filled it not do so validating and validate if it is filled with a new email. Email2 have a hidden field in order to do a test type.
The jquery.validate.pack.js file found on [url] causes an error when run in IE6. I re-ran the packing process with the perl port of Dean Edwards' Packer found here [url] and the problem no longer persists.
Here is the command I ran on cygwin:
These are the safest settings I've found with jsPacker.pl. The packed file lost 2kb (.1kb gzipped) of savings, but it works now!
I am using the "Validation" plugin to validate my form. This is a multipart form where a user can upload a file. I would like to validate the choosen file name such that it contains only alphanumeric characters plus defined extensions. For that I tried the combination of the rules "accept" and "alphanumeric" but this does not work because the file name is the full path of the file name and it contains non alphanumeric characters as: C:umyDirectorymyFile.txt
regular expression which could tests that myFile is made only of alphanumeric characters ?
I'm working under certain constraints wherein,at a certain point outside my direct control,validate is called with no arguments, but after that I want to set a custom validation function on a form field. I figure there's got to be a way to manipulate validate's internal data structure to add the function, but I don't have a clue as to how.
I have a section of a form containing elements that are not visible, currently just in a hidden div. Some of these elements have validation on them so when the form is submitted it fails on this validation.What I am after is a way to stop the validation firing for any hidden elements. I have tried setting them to 'display: none' and 'visibility: hidden' but this does not have any affect.
I have recently downloaded the jQuery Validation Plugin, and I want to use the bottom part of the demo [url] (Validating a Complete Form) and I have some questions to ask:
1. I want the validation to work after the user clicked "Submit"
2. If a column is wrong (username already taken or password length invalid) I want not only error message but also a picture in front of the error message.
3. I hope that after the user clicks "Submit" and then found a column is wrong then correct it, after the user corrected it and click to other place or other column the validator starts again to check the column the user just edited whether the user just corrected a wrong column or edited a correct column into error.
4. I hope to display a image in right of the column if that column is correct after the validator works.
I've been building up my validation using the jquery validation plugin but I can't work out how to get a failed validation to default the focus to the first invalid input rather than to the last selected input. If there is no input field selected, when I submit then a failed validation will focus the cursor on the first field but if the cursor was left in a field and submitted then the focus stays there (if it's invalid) rather than jump to the first invalid input. From what I've read and seen, this is the expected behaviour but not what I want. Is there a way I can get the first invalid field and set the focus to that?
About the jquery Validation plugin. I need to lock the submit button on some forms to prevent multiple submissions, but I don't want to permanently lock it, in case there's a validation problem that the user needs to resolve. I did come up with a way to temporarily lock it and change the text to "Saving, Please Wait..." for a few seconds, then revert it to an unlocked submit button.
The problem I'm having is that this conflicts somehow with the jquery validation plugin. Some fields that have error messages if the user attempts to submit the form with missing data. If I use the temporary locking submit button (which uses an animation to create a duration) then these error messages do not display.
Is it possible to test for a validation value in a separate function before running this lock function? If valid, lock, if not valid, don't lock, because it isn't possible to submit an invalid form anyway. I tried wrapping the locking submit function in a setTimeout, but that didn't have any effect at all in delaying it.
I have an array called officers and each officer is an array itself of 5 items....name, position, phone, address, email. My officer array currently has just 4 sub arrays. But I'd eventually like to make it dynamic where I can add as many as i want when filling out this form. Below is a snippet of my form structure....this is just ONE of the 4 officers
Of course it goes on with officer2 and such....My PHP script will take and break each officer array apart and write it into a database using: officer1 = officer1name officer1 = officer1position officer1 = officer1phone .....etc
Then officer2 = officer2name ....etc of all the officer arrays, I'd like to validate that at LEAST one of the officer arrays has ALL 5 elements filled. I am not using Jquery's validate function so I need to stay out of that. Due to the nature of my form, Jquery's validate function wouldn't work properly.
im loading data via json dynamical from the server. Now i try to optimate the speed of my application and so i want to disable the validate of the fields during the data loading from the server.Is there a simple solution to this? like validate = false
however the validation still fails on the creditcard field. If I enter this in to Firefox's console:
it returns false.
To make matters more confusing, this validation only fails on my form when I am passing a particular parameter in the URL string. I've scoured my code and cannot figure out why that parameter would have any impact whatsoever on this matter.
validator [URL]..Plugins/Validationis not compatible with ui.dialog? In asp.net3.5 environment, if I show a dialog with the div containing the fields to validate, validation option are cleared and validator return always true.
The validation works as expected but regardless of whether the form is valid or not, the button takes me to the next panel. I think what I need to do is add something to the jQuery that will run "btn_P1_Next_Click" but only when form1 is valid, otherwise it will keep me on the same panel. Also within the jQuery I would need to account for the current panel, e.g. so if I am on panel1 then run "btn_P1_Next_Click", on panel2 run"btn_P2_Next_Click"...
the user enters his values in 4, 5,25,6,00 or 6,05 etc.(using the , sign)and the max validation only takes integers. How can I still make the max validation with the , sign and float values? The users isn't allowed to submit the form if the value is greater than the max value specifyed.
