    validation issue Link to this post


    Currently I'm building a site with silverstripe 2.1 that has lots of forms that need validation. The most of the formfields I can validate using the RequiredFields class, but I have some formelements that are only visible when the previous question is answered yes. Is it possible to create some validation that checks the previous question and when needed the validation is added?

    Thanks for your help!

    hm your best bet is probably to subclass RequireFields and overload the javascript() method with your own client-side validation. unfortunately we can't directly append javascript event-handlers to a form-onsubmit because of the way our validator works.
