Summary: This lecture will wrap up our discussion on form validation. After talking about the basic validation we get the “required” attribute, we moved into jQuery validation plugin. We will download it and have it installed in the current directory. Then, we will add the appropriate references. We will give the fields a name and an id. Then, we will add a script tag to place all the validation code. We will discuss the validations available on the web site, and start using them in the page. We will see how to validate required fields and email addresses. We will even add our own validator that makes sure the email address does not start with a number. Finally, we will add a bonus that shows how to use the developer tools to debug the code.
