Before I start to use jquery for form validation, I wonder if I could user RequiredFields to check if a CheckboxField is selected .
The next code is not validating the CheckboxField :

function SubscriptionForm() {
      $condition =FormPage::ConditionDetails();
      $url = $condition->URLSegment;
      $fields = new FieldSet(
         new HiddenField("Subject", "Subject", $this->CF_Title),
         new TextField("Name", "Naam"),
         new CheckboxField("CheckThis","Ckeck this box")

      $actions = new FieldSet(
               new FormAction('SendSubscriptionForm', 'Send')

      $validator = new RequiredFields('Name','CheckThis');
      $form = new Form($this, "SubscriptionForm", $fields, $actions, $validator);
      return $form;

Seems ok, but maybe i missed something.

Thanks in advance..

RequiredFields needs to be passed an array of fieldnames, not a string

new RequiredFields(array('Name', 'CheckThis'));

You replied before I edited the post, but you were right about the typo.

I noticed that the checkboxes do validate serverside after form submission, but not onClick with the Textfields.

However, I can live with it for the moment...
