Does anybody found the strange thing? struts validator works fine with integer, but not work with double in the same page. No error at all, just doesn't validate double.

Here is the code in validation.xml (I double checked the case, spell,...). I am stuck here!!

<field property="match_msnum"
<arg0 key="prompt.match_msnum"/>

<field property="matchedPrMW"
<arg0 key="prompt.matchedPrMW"/>

Odds are, the property is not correct. Check the spelling and case.

Marc, thanks for looking into it,

When I add "required, depends="required,double", only the rquired is validated on client-side, I can input none double characters with no error msg appears. (But I saw server-side validation msg saying required double this time). This also means there is no mistakes in case, spell.

The depends="required, integer" validate both required and integer on client-side.

So why the double can not be validated on client-side?

Surprisingly, I saw many validation functions such as maxlength, integer,...on my jsp page source view, but I couldn't see the double, validwhen function.
