Hi All,

I am new to Validator framework.I am trying to validate a form on the browser itself.But the validation is not happening.Please find the code below.



this is my JSP form page which i want to validate

my Validation.xml

<formset>

<!-- An example form -->
<form name="firstForm">
<field
property="name"
depends="required">
<arg key="firstForm.name"/>
</field>
<field
property="password"
depends="required,mask">
<arg key="firstForm.password"/>
<var>
<var-name>mask</var-name>
<var-value>^[0-9a-zA-Z]*$</var-value>
</var>
</field>
</form>

</formset>
[/code]

and i have put the subsequent entries in the struts-config.xml also.
I think onsubmit javascript event handling is not happening

Try changing validatefirstForm(this) to validateFirstForm(this).

Thanks Merill for the reply.
I changed that it did not work.
The changing wont work because the name of my form in the
struts-config.xml is 'firstForm'
so validatefirstForm(this).
Please advise what needs to be done.

Looks like there may be other problems. It will help to have a look at the relevant portion of your struts-config.xml file.

Regarding the spelling issue: It's been my experience that Struts will normalize the capitalization of the JavaScript method regardless of whether your form name starts with an upper or lower case letter. You can verify this for sure by using your browser's "view source" function to see the JavaScript code that Struts added to your page. Look for the validateFirstForm function and you'll be able to see how it's capitalized. If you don't see any JavaScript code added to your page, you know there's some other problem.

The part of your struts-config.xml file that I wanted to see with the action path definition for the action used in this form. Did you specify validate="true"?
