jQuery 1.4, jQuery Validate 1.6, xVal

Jan 19, 2010 at 3:27 PM

i tryed xVal on an asp.net mvc 1.0 project and I can not get it to validate the form at all.

Is there a trick to make it work ?

Does it work with jQuery 1.4 and jQuery Validate 1.6 just released ?

Got exactly the same issue, not sure if there is some compatibility issues, but no where online seems to mention anything about it... i dont get any errors in firebug either, it just doesnt do anything :(

Hi Softlion and Grofit

xVal works absolutely fine with the new jQuery 1.4 and jQuery Validation 1.6. For example, if you download the "demo project" from http://blog.codeville.net/2009/09/17/xval-v10-now-available/ and change it to reference jQuery 1.4 and jQuery Validaion 1.6, it still works perfectly.

Can you supply any steps to reproduce your problem?

I've upgraded my MVC 1.0 project to MVC 2.0 RC and now it works perfectly.

What i would like to see improved is how Html.ClientSideValidation selects form elements to validate.
Instead of (or in addition to) using a form prefix, it would be nice to use the form name. This way only elements within the selected form would be validated.
