Got a form working with all required fields plus two with extra validation, an email field and a password confirmation field. Password confirmation is using the Equal To validator and, if the field is empty the Required validator stops the form being submitted, but it doesn't then compare with the password field to stop the form being submitted if there is no match. Any ideas?
Hello Nigel, I am not really sure i understand what exactly are you trying to do .... equal to rule should not be used empty. In the equal to rule you must enter the name of the field you want to compare to.
What I mean is that the Required Validation works if the field is left empty, but if the field contains a value not equal to the password field, the form is still submitted. Does the order of adding these validations matter?
This may solve my issue as well then, the videos didn't say you have to add both client and server side validation - maybe worth mentioning as an addition on the video?!
update; added Client side and Server side validation and it enters into the database! YES!! However, I've now added email validation to check the entered value 'Does NOT exist in the database' - Now the form just sits there!! it's obviously checking but no error message is showing and I get green ticks on the form - something still very wrong.
