Problem with password validation

Thread began 11/05/2009 7:53 pm by edison390711 | Last modified 11/05/2009 10:43 pm by Eric Mittman | 848 views | 1 replies |


Problem with password validation

I'm experiencing a problem using client side Like Entry validation to compare a password field (name="password") and a confirm password field (name="password2") on a form. I add the validation comparing the password2 and password fields, everything looks OK, so I click on finish. When I test the validation, it doesn't work. When I go back into the client validation, password2 is being compared to email, which is the first field on the form.

According to the help, Like Entry works with hidden, text and text area fields. Does it not work with password fields. If not, is there another way to compare the two fields?

There is no limitation for the password fields, you should be able to apply the like entry these types of inputs the same as you would for text inputs. I have put together an example page with two password boxes and the like entry applied. Please take a look at this test it out to see how it works. The validation and the response were added to the form.
