Validation Toolkit and Formbuilder

Do I need to have validation toolkit installed to update the validation in user registraion or because I have formbuilder do I have to rebuild all the forms to update the validations with formbuilder?

You do not need to have Validation Toolkit installed to modify the validations on the form. The validations are built into CSS Form Builder. You can edit what type of validation is applied by clicking the edit button in the Choose a Form section. If you already have the form applied, you can select the form and in the properties inspector click on the edit contents button. In this wizard, select the group that you want to edit and click the edit button. On this page the different form elements will be listed and what kind of validation they have applied. If you want to change one of these, select the form element and in the bottom left corner of the wizard, there should be a dropdown for you to select a different validation to apply.

When applying a form, there are two different types of validation that are applied: client side (using Dreamweaver Spry elements) and server side (using our own validation code). You can specify which types you want applied by clicking on the edit button under Choose a design or if you have the form applied already, you can select the form and click the edit design button in the properties inspector. When on this page, select Validations from the drop down menu and there are checkboxes for client and server under type. If it is checked, that type of validation will be applied.

If you have a form of your own that you have created, Form Builder should be able to recognize the form and you should be able to modify the form using Form Builder. You can also apply validations to the form by going to the menu: Insert->WebAssist->CSS Form Builder->Client/Server Validation.

Validation Toolkit and Formbuilder

Hi Jimmy,

Sorry for replying in this thread, but after reading your response on editing the form ("If you already have the form applied, you can select the form and in the properties inspector click on the edit contents button."). I tried selecting the form on the page, but in the properties panel there is no edit contents button. I tried this with every form in the User Reg Solution pack, Contact Form Solution pack, and the forms in the CMS Solution pack, no luck, no "edit contents button"

I do have all of the above solution packs along with CSS Form Builder, and the complete WebAssist Super Suite. I should be able to select the form on the page, then click the <form#WAATKRegistrationForm tag> then click the edit contents button in the properties panel, correct. But I cannot, there is no edit contents button. Can anyone explain why?

Thanks for all and any help.

Larry

These forms were not created using Form Builder. Form Builder was developed after these solutions were completed.

Hi Larry,

The edit bottons won't show in the properties panel until you have applied CSSFormBuilder to the form on your page.

To do this, select the form on your page (make sure it's selected by clicking the form#formname on the elements bar that sits just above the properties panel) and then in DW menu bar, select Insert > WebAssist > CSS Form Builder > Insert Form.

You can then configure the design and contents of your existing form and add whatever validations you want.

Thereafter, you can re-enter the form at any time by using the edit buttons which willnow show in the properties panel.

If you just want to apply validation to an existing form but not change design or content, you can just choose Client or Server validation from the WebAssist CSS Form Builder Insert menu.

I thank you both, Ray and neilo for your answers and quick response. After reading both responses, I tried neilo's suggestion on an extra form I have and it did work after words.

So now I know what I need to do in order to accomplish my task.

Again, thank you both.

form validation throws errors...

I have an existing form on the page, which has been 'inserted' using webassist css formbuilder. When I try to apply validations using client validations, I get the different form fields to choose from and the different types of validations to choose from.
If I then attempt to use the + to save any of the fields I immediately get an error:
"
when executing onLoad in WAFV_Alphnumeric_C.htm, the following JavaScript errors occured:

at line 81 of file
"C:/Users/mydirectory/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS5/en_US/Configuration/Commands/WAFV_Alphnumeric_C.js":
isThisACommand id not defined"

if it's any other type of field the field type changes, of course in the error
Win7, CS5

The error is a result of having Form Toolkit installed, try uninstalling Form Toolkit and Form Builder and install Only Form Builder.

Let me know if you still get the error.

opening dreamweaver now throws error...

I removed the formToolkit as you suggested.
Now when I open CS5 I get an error:
"At line 24 of file
......Configuration/Floaters/WA_Memento.js":
document.remindersWP.document has no properties

If I close that error and attempt to use webassist CSS Form to validate the form I now only have Client Validation to choose from... and that throws this error:

....Configuration\Shared\WebAssist\FormValidations\WAFV_Serial_Library.js" (error 3)
