Validation success not firing?

Hello,
I have the fail working but the success is not. Any reasons why?

<?php 
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
$WAFV_Redirect = "";
$_SESSION['WAVT_EmployeeDetails_705_Errors'] = "";
if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
$WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
}
$WAFV_Errors = "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX(((isset($_POST["textPass"]))?$_POST["textPass"]:"") . "","/^(?=.*\d)(?=.*\W).{8,20}$/",true,1);

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {
PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"EmployeeDetails_705");
}
}
?>




<div class="row col-md-12">

<div class="col-md-6">
<label for="textPass">Your current password is:</label>
<input name="textPass" type="text" id="textPass" value="<?php echo($rsDetails->getColumnVal("password")); ?>" class="form-control">
<!-- TODO ADD Validation to make password secure -->
(requires 8-20 characters with 1 number and 1 special character such as: !@#$%^&*)
</div>


<?php
if (ValidatedField('EmployeeDetails_705','EmployeeDetails_705')) {
if ((strpos((",".ValidatedField("EmployeeDetails_705","EmployeeDetails_705").","), "," . "") >= 0)) {
if (!((strpos((",".ValidatedField("EmployeeDetails_705","EmployeeDetails_705").","), "," . "1" . ",") !== false || "1" == ""))) {
?>
<div class="alert-success col-md-6">Password Updated Successfully</div>
<?php //WAFV_Conditional Employee-Details.php EmployeeDetails_705(:1)
}
}
}?>




<?php
if (ValidatedField('EmployeeDetails_705','EmployeeDetails_705')) {
if ((strpos((",".ValidatedField("EmployeeDetails_705","EmployeeDetails_705").","), "," . "1" . ",") !== false || "1" == "")) {
if (!(false)) {
?>
<div class="alert-warning col-md-6">Password did not update Successfully (requires 8-20 characters with 1 number and 1 special character)</div>
<?php //WAFV_Conditional Employee-Details.php EmployeeDetails_705(1:)
}
}
}?>

</div>

The validation success will actually only run if at least one validation fails but that one succeeds. The solution is to just use the form submit as the condition for the success message like:


<?php
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
?>
<div class="alert-success col-md-6">Password Updated Successfully</div>
<?php
}
?>

Thanks... Yes I am able to use that to get the success BUT once a fail is set it will not clear...
Frustrating.

I see. A simple solution would be to wrap the fail validation in the reverse IF statement like:

php:
<?php

  
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] != "POST")  {
?>
<?php
if (ValidatedField('EmployeeDetails_705','EmployeeDetails_705'))  {
  if ((
strpos((",".ValidatedField("EmployeeDetails_705","EmployeeDetails_705").","), "," "1" ",") !== false || "1" == ""))  {
    if (!(
false))  {
?>
                <div class="alert-warning col-md-6">Password did not update Successfully (requires 8-20 characters with 1 number and 1 special character)</div>
            <?php //WAFV_Conditional Employee-Details.php EmployeeDetails_705(1:)
    
}
  }
}
?>
<?php
  
}
?>
