Hi Guys

I am using the actionClass-validation.xml method to validate form inputs. I have one field which I want to valid several things, the first I have already implemented and that is if the field is empty. The other two validations I want to implement are (1) Length of string, it must be 11 chars and (2) All chars must be numbers only. Here is what I have done so far:

actionClass-validation.xml


actionClass.java

hello...just try out this piece of coe for validator xml file.I'm sure the string length validator would work fine not sure of the int validator.Give a try.



You can do the same without the short-circuit attribute also.

Hi
The max char works perfectly fine, but the int one doesn't work at all. If I enter letters it will still work when it shouldnt. And if I submit it the action class spits out the following error:



I tried to convert the value from int to string before storing it but everytime I would submit the form the contactno field would just turn blank.

I have managed to fix it. I used regex instead and that did the job.
 
This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
