Conditional Validation not removing spry error validation

Conditional Validation not removing spry error validation

Not sure if I missed something out but I have followed the help docs but I still get the same result.

I have made form in CSS FB2 and added fields that are required also with error message and all works well but I have options in the form that would remove the required status of other options so in the Conditional Validation behaviour I selected the form element (radio button) and select the target form element and select stop validation. However the form still processes the field as required?

Any pointers would be appreciated.

the client side conditional validation cannot be used in conjunction with spry validation. they are 2 different scripts.

if you are going to use conditional validation, you cannot use spry validation as well on the conditional field.

Just so i get this straight, the validation in CCS FB has to be removed and then I have to add server side validation for the Conditional to work?

the spry validation has to be removed


you can then use the conditional client side validation

you can use server side valiation for the elements that are not conditional

I now have an issue removing the validation that CSS FB adds when making the form.

Even if remove the warning text from the set and make sure that validation required box is unticked the form will not submit and highlights the fields that were previously required? (this is in the preview)

Do I have to go into the code and remove the spry validations at the bottom of the page in the final version?

you can have the spry validation not added to the form by clicking the Edit CSS Button next to the design select list in the main Form Builder UI, form the select list, select validations, and for type, uncheck client


if the form has already been created with spry validation, then yes, you will need to remove it from the fields that you want to be conditional.

This extension appeared to offer so much but so far I have had nothing but problems with it and as with all WA extensions there is little in the way of detailed instructions that explain what can be done and how!

If this is starting to sound like a rant you may be right but after spending over 2 days trying to make a simple contact form is it any wonder!

To address you last reply, it appears that you are saying that in order to make a form with no validation you have to set these options first before you even start the design of the form otherwise you will need to remove the spry validations by hand coding as even if the options are set not to validate it still will.

I have attached a few screen dumps to show the issues I have been having and for me a web developer of over 10 years this extension was supposed to make form authoring a breeze when in fact I could have hand coded the same form in DW in less than an hour!

All I simply want to do it make certain fields validate based on the value of other fields but apparently this is not possible with the default form made by CSS FB so I remove the validation from the element and in the custom css options, but I still get the validation messages, I then remove the spry validation code at the footer of the page eg.

And it appears to stop validating, great! But as soon as I edit the form the extension puts it back in!! Also there are replications of JQuery datepicker functions in the header? it is as if the extension cannot recognise its own code!

Can some please explain how the validation system works in this extension and what are the pro and cons of each use, in my case how you can use conditional validations with a form created by this extension.
