Need Help with Jquery.Validate

Hi

I am not sure what I am doing wrong I am using the Jquery.Validate plugin and it has a remote field

so I did this


the required works fine. It's the remote. I am using asp.net mvc and the path is right it hits my method




it returns false according to firebug yet jquery.validate does not kick in. I am using Version 1.5.5 of jquery.validate and jquery 1.3.2

What did I miss?

P.S what is the default message for remote?

Please be sure to use code tags when posting code to the forums. Unformatted code is extremely hard to read and many people that might be able to help you will just move along to posts that are easier to read. Please read this for more information.

I haven't used the remote rule yet myself. Are you sure it's kicking off the check?

Sorry was in a rush totally forgot about them. Thanks for reminding me

Well I put a debug line in Visual studios on the "Test" Method. When I leave the the "UserName" box it goes to this "Test" method and walks through the debug line. So I am assuming the rule is getting set properly since that's the only piece of code that is referencing the that "Test" method. Firebug also shows in the console that it hits that method and returns "False"

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but it's probably time to break open the plugin code and see what it's doing...

Well I wont' have to do that at least. I set my method to return "false" instead of

return false;

and that did the trick. It seems that if you return false; it sends back "False" not "false" and jquery.validate only understand "false".
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
