Hi All,

I have gone through struts validator framework.
Currently we have to implement only client side validation using struts validator framework in our project.

We have requirement where we have one drop down with values YES and NO. When I select YES , then one text box is displayed and in this case only, contents of textbox becomes mandatory.
If I select NO, then contents of textbox is not mandatory.

I think , requiredif or validwhen can resolve my problem.

I have checked in struts documentation but it does not clearly specify , whether they are server side and which are client side validations [amongst the available in struts validator framework]

Further I checked below mentioned sites , which say that requiredif or validwhen are server side validations.
http://www.theserverside.com/discussions/thread.tss?thread_id=36950
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/struts-user/200604.mbox/%3C5F1761E7ABCC1B4C93A78CE3ECA1C8D50A1E57@essex01.ess.com%3E

Thus kindly help me on how to do client side validation which involves dependency.

I am using struts 1.2.7 version.

Regards,
Vishal

Hi Yogesh lonkar,

Thanks for your prompt response. Really appreciate , you took time out.

But sorry to say, my question is not answered.

As I want to implement dependency validations in client side javascript validation using Struts validator framework only..

Yesterday I searched on google and recommendation which I concluded is writing custom validation is way out.
Below mentioned in URL which I got.
http://www.raibledesigns.com/rd/date/20030226#struts_validator_validating_two_fields

Can someone confirm me whether , I am right track. or I am re-writing code, for which already components available in validator framework.

Just want to highlight again, My Objective is to achieve dependency validation through client side javascript validation through struts validator framework only.

Regards,
Vishal

Hi All,

I was able to create custom validations using existing javascript functions.
Still I am awaiting if any master has already coded for the same in struts.

Thanks and Regards,
Vishal

Hi All,

Please someone kindly confirm whether I am on right track by reading above posts.

Thanks and Regards,
