Hi, I have a custom form on a webpage, and some fields need to be filled in.

I create the fields, I add them to the fieldset, I add the field names to a RequiredFields, as in

$validator = new RequiredFields('Surname', 'FirstName', 'BBOUserName', 'Password', 'Email');

And if I don't fill in the fields, I get an error message. Fine.

Except that the RequiredFields is taking no notice of the Password field, which is defined as

        $Password = new ConfirmedPasswordField(
                $name = 'Password',
                $title = 'Password*',
                $value = $PasswordVal,
                'Please confirm your password'

What am I doing wrong?

Any idea of what I am doing wrong or how I can fix the problem?
