Hi All,

I want to enable/disable save button after 8 fields validation in my page.
I have old technique:- that is keep a boolean flag for every field(in our case 8 flags), update corresponding field(when the fileld is valid/invalid) and check, if all the flags are true then only "enable/disable" save button.

My question is do we have any better approach, like using one variable.


I am very thankful for any suggestions/solutions.

Thanks,
Praneeth

You don't need any variables at all. Have a change handler on the form that checks to see if the validation requirements are met, and change the state of the button if so.
