Hi Neilo and James.
Thanks for your continued help.
Neilo I tried your version.
It still has the same problem, if people fill out all validated fields (phone, name, email, comments) the foe sends successfully.
If they do not fill out all four the page just reloads.
There is no validation popup, you are able to click submit.
The validation only occurs if the field has had focus or if an invalid format is filled in.
James, I want the form to act that way, it will only send if all fields are validated. but the error messages do not come up, so people using the form do not know they have to fill in all fields: they can click submit without having the fields validated.
The current version up is the one you send me Neilo.
