Validation not working at all

I have created an online application form, however none of the validation works when clicking the submit button.

I have used this product before but have never had this problem before.

The page can be found here http://k9-sar.com/Application_Form.php

That's one hell of a validation routine

Hey Daryl,

Have you tried removing some of the validation?

My browser shows an error on line 354 at character 3235. Missing ")"

Now, I've gone through a couple of times, even breaking each validation onto a separate line, and I don't see any missing parenthesis, so I'm wondering if you've exceeded some character limit.

Mind you - it's 4.55am here and I am a little bleary - so I'm not ruling out the fact I've missed it.

First thing I'd do would be to reduce that onsubmit chunk and see if it works.


Hope that helps.


Cheers
John

I have seen that error too on Error Console, however I have compared it to the validation before it and its exactly the same but doesn't throw up any errors.

Bizzare!

I don't know

I would try reducing the checks though, just for the hell of it.

The page validates or at least it *did* ;-)

Guess you're still working on it. I couldn't see any missing commas, misplaced commas or quotes, nothing that would cause the browser to parse the code interpreting ) as part of a text string - so you've got me.

Personally I prefer Server-Side validation because a) I can't stand js and b) I have more control over the testing. Sure, both are better - but mostly the first reason is enough for me to stay away from Client-Side. Besides. There's no guarantee JS is enabled.

Good luck with it anyway.

p.s. You have a typo on your 5th checkbox. : )

I am still working on it

I have decided to start the validation all over again, doing a few at a time and then testing it - bit annoying to say the least!

I haven't got my head around using server side validation yet.

OK, the problem seems to occur when I validate more than 1 checkbox...

any ideas out there?

I have managed to get the page working by using radio buttons instead, but if anyone has an answer I would still be interested to hear it.

If you put up a URL of a page that you have tried and is not working I could look at it and probably determine what is wrong.
