I want to validate a large form. Quiet easy with requiredfields etc, but the problem is it can only be validate on a certain action. I have got one save button and a save & sent button. The validation must only takes place when you click on the save & sent button. Is this possible? It now validates on every submit of both buttons. I just want a validation on the save & sent button.

Thx in advance.

currently the validator isn't as versatile as we'd like it to be, so you have to override Validator::includeJavascriptValidation() and change to a conditional onsubmit handler
