Using CSS Form Builder validation tools with ecart

I have a registration form I have build with some great help from Jason Byrnes in some trouble I had but now have a question of validating the ecart generated checkout form.

All information from the current form in the checkout page is writing to the database

Can I use either client side or server side validation on the form without bringing the form into form builder?

I do have some custom fields including a multi select box, if I have to bring the current form into form builder, is it going to modify any of the fields rendering it useless?

If I do bring it into form builder, what is the best way to handle it, meaning what selections would I need to make in form builder to make sure the validation is written and not mess with the form fields.

you you can add validation without running form builder.

Go to Webassist -> Forms -> Validation -> Serve validation to add the validation server behavior.


The checkout page ussually post to the confirm page, so the validation needs to be applied to the confirm page.

Before applying the validation, go to the bindings panle on the confirm page, clic kthe plus button and select Form Data, click the folder icon and select the checkout page, this will add dynamic data bindings for the checkout form to the confirm page.

I've done exactly as you have outlined and the form isn't validating. I intentionally left fields blank and but it processed anyway with no error.

Shouldn't there be a validation message if a designated field is required?

Thanks

Sorry about that, although there is no validation message, I did forget to assign the failure redirect.

Question:

I noticed that even if the form does not validate, everything still writes to the database. Jason if you remember the confirm page has the data set to store on post from the checkout page in my form.

So should I be validating the checkout page in the checkout page?

How would I prevent the data from writing to the database if the form is not validating?

Thanks

on the confirm page, change line 24:
if (isset($_POST["Submit_order"])) {

to:
if (isset($_POST["Checkout"])) {




Submit_order is the name of the submit button on the confirm page, Checkout is the name of the button on the checkout page, you want the server validations to occur when the checkout page submits to the confirm page, so the trigger must use the submit button freom the checkout page, not the submit button from the confirm page.
