Reproducible Bug

Reproducible Bug

I have discovered a reproducible bug with Validation toolkit 2.3.5 in ASP/VB. When you have two forms on a page, and one or more of the forms has a "name" tag, the extension gets confused when validating the 2nd form. It incorrectly applies the validation using the form name from the first extension.

I am sure this has something to do with the changes you had to make when PHP deprecated form[formName].

Adding a name tag to the second form clearly throws something off, see the attachment when running the extension. The first form without a name tag is displayed as forms[0]... the second one with a name tag is [ResetPasswordForm]... whenever I see this, I know that VTK will not properly apply the validation.

Any way this can get addresses?

thank you for the details, I have logged this as a bug in our system.

to work around the issue, try removing the name from the form element before applying client validation. You can add the name back afterwords.

Thank you for your replies to my messages this morning, Jason. In regards to this issue, removing the name is exactly what I am doing to get around the issue. In a few months now,I will forget about this and wonder why my form isn't validating correctly, so if this were an easy fix for a future release, it sure would be appreciated.

Thank you,
