Subject [jira] Created: (VALIDATOR-219) New display method for client validation error
Date Sat, 23 Dec 2006 02:57:21 GMT
New display method for client validation error

                 Key: VALIDATOR-219
             Project: Commons Validator
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: JavaScript
            Reporter: Joost Schouten
            Priority: Minor


I would like to suggest to make an enhancement to the client side validation process so that
the client validation error message is displayed the same way the client side validation messages
are displayed. Personally I would prefer making this the default behavour and eliminating
the JavaScript alert(). Another option might be to change the value passed through to the
client attribute of the s:commonsValidator tag to multiple options like "alert" and "message".

When message would be chosen, the JavaScript will populate the <div> representing the
h:message tag.

I think this will result in a more elegant notification to the enduser.

<h:inputText id="email" value="#{}">
		<s:commonsValidator type="required" message="#{labels['err.requiredField']}" server="true"
<h:message for="email" styleClass="error"/>

We currently have a fairly elaborate system in place where empty JavaScript Array's are generated
for each validator type. Whenever a value needs to be validated, the input object will be
added to the specific validator Array. On submit each array will be checked for their correct
values , messages are dysplayed acoringly and the request is stopped.

How do you think we should implement this feature, and what part of this process belongs in
Shale, and what part belongs in the commons validator. I also posted this RFE in the shale
issue tracker (SHALE-373).

Thank you,
