Ah this is mootools again, I heard this problem from one of my friends. But I couldn't figure it out, to use mootools with other Javascript libraries, such as jQuery or Prototype. I am not sure whether there is a way though.

I have raised this as a question somewhere on this forums, (cant remember where :) ). Anyway try asking about it on the mootools IRC. I will try too.

Thx for the reply.. Unfortunately you also don't have any answer :(
The exact problem now is between mootools and prototype that conflict. When creating a form, there are some javascript loaded, and the prototype and protoype_improvements.js that caused the problem.. So right now the temporary solution to make the mootools animation work is by block that 2 javascript, it just make the form validation will reload the whole page when validating.

Anyway thx for your reply nivanka, and please inform me once you have the answer, i will also look around to see if there are someway to avoid this conflict.

yes thats correct, prototype and mootools conflicts, anyway if we can find an answer for this it will be more useful for others as well.

Yes, i think it would be very helpful.. Do you think we can raise this to the silverstripe senior developer? Probably they can find a way to change the form validation method..
