Password confirmation field

Thread began 7/25/2011 3:43 pm by iainmacdonald331081 | Last modified 8/31/2011 6:30 pm by iainmacdonald331081 | 3008 views | 10 replies |

Password confirmation field

I've got a registration page here:

registration/

which is pretty much working, except for the password confirmation field. The validation error only displays if the field is empty, but not if the field contains different text to the password field.

Any idea what I'm missing here?

Thanks.

You should be adding the confirm field with:

Insert->Spry->Spry Validation Confirm

It looks like you just added a regular spry validation field and not a confirm.

Thanks Ray - I didn't add anything - the Confirm field was added as part of the Security Assist wizard.

The code currently looks like:

<div class="errorGroup"> 
<span id="Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry">
<input id="Registration_group_1_Confirm" name="Registration_group_1_Confirm" type="text" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("registration","Registration_group_1_Confirm"):"")); ?>" size="50" tabindex="13" onBlur="hideServerError('Registration_group_1_Confirm_ServerError');">
<?php
if (ValidatedField('registration','registration')) {
if ((strpos((",".ValidatedField("registration","registration").","), "," . "8" . ",") !== false || "8" == "")) {
if (!(false)) {
?>
<span class="serverInvalidState" id="Registration_group_1_Confirm_ServerError">Password values must match.</span>
<?php //WAFV_Conditional registration.php registration(8:)
}
}
}?>
<span class="textfieldInvalidFormatMsg">Invalid format.</span><span class="textfieldRequiredMsg">Password values must match.</span> </span>
</div>



So that has a <span id> value of Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry - which looks right.

Or, if I take it out, and add a new field myself:

<span id="spryconfirm2">
<label for="Confirm">Confirm</label>
<input type="text" name="Confirm" id="Confirm" />
<span class="confirmRequiredMsg">A value is required.</span><span class="confirmInvalidMsg">The values don't match.</span></span>

How do I relate that back to the Password field?

This line should be updated:

var Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry", "none", { isConfirm:true , validateOn:["blur"]});


to:

var Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationConfirm("Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry", "Registration_group_1_password");


And then you'll have to add the spry confirm .js and .css files to your header. I've attached a copy of those files.

Thanks Ray - added and amended that, and now getting the error:

Spry.ValidationConfirm ERR: The element Registration_group_ 1_Confirm_Spry doesn't exist

It has an extra space added by the forum since I didn't add the code in a code block.

Remove the space before the 1 in "group_ 1"

I'll update my example code.

Sorry - might have spotted that one...

That field isn't doing anything validation wise now though....

registration/

I tried:

var Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationConfirm("Registration_group_1_Confirm_Spry", "Registration_group_1_password",{validateOn:["blur"]});



But that didn't work either.

Yeah I forgot a step.... you do need to add , {validateOn:["blur"]} like you have... but you also have to update the validated field span tags from:

<span class="textfieldInvalidFormatMsg">Invalid format.</span><span class="textfieldRequiredMsg">Password values must match.</span>

to:

<span class="confirmRequiredMsg">Please enter a value</span><span class="confirmInvalidMsg">Password values must match.</span>

What version of Dreamweaver are you using? This could be an issue with needing to install the latest spry validation into your DW.
