  • You got anything like this that works with JQuery?

  • You can check http://bassistance.de/jquery-plugins/jquery-plugin-validation/ and try to mix it with some of the CSS in here, :)

  • TQ… Nice Plugin

    Looks good – going to try replacing fValidator on a few of my sites now…

    Hmm, well I installed it and tried it out, and found that it generated a table for the tooltip popup. What the christ?

    Fortunately the js has been written well enough that I can override the maketips function (line 728 in the uncompressed formchecks.js file) but it’s still pretty disappointing that someone who had the intelligence to create such a well thought out form validation class thought it would be a good idea to use a table as presentational markup.

    It looks fairly well written otherwise and it’s really nice to have common validation regexes and other cases pre-defined. :D

    @Henry: The table has been choose because it’s the easiest way to generate a tip that can be resizable without having to check dynamically the size of the message. I understand that deontologically we should use table only for tabular datas but standards are respected.

    the version 1.4.2 also introduce a new way to check field using a custom validation function. See this new functionnality in action:

    Is there any way to install FormCheck on a simple PHP contact form?
