Hi Friends,
I am tryin to validate my form in struts using Validator form.First question,my form class extends ActionForm,but they are saying the form class should extend ValidatorForm,which is correct???

I made my form class extend the ValidatorForm class,and wrote all the validation components,and its validating but no pop-up box is coming up.And I have disabled my pop-up blocked too.Here's are my parts:

validation.xml:

Struts-config.xml:

voteForm class:


addVote.jsp


Please help friends....

If you're going to use the Struts Validation Framework, your Action Form must extend ValidatorForm.

Regarding why your client-side validation isn't working, I'd try changing:

<html:form action="/addvote" method="post" onsubmit="return validatevoteForm(this);" >

To:

<html:form action="/addvote" method="post" onsubmit="return validateVoteForm(this);" >

If you use your browser's "view source" function to view the actual content of the page, you can see the JavaScript code that Struts put in the page. You should be able to see a "validateVoteForm" JavaScript method.

Hi Friends,

I am also trying to validate my login form in struts using Validator form.

I made my form class extend the ValidatorForm class,and wrote all the validation components,and its validating but no pop-up box is coming up.
And I have disabled my pop-up blocked too.Here's are my parts:

validation.xml:

code:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<formset>
<!-- An example form -->
<form name="LoginForm">
<field property="username" depends="required">
<arg key="tlms.logonForm.username" />
</field>
<field property="password" depends="required,mask">
<arg key="tlms.logonForm.password" />
<var>
<var-name>mask</var-name>
<var-value>^[0-9a-zA-Z]*$</var-value>
</var>
</field>
</form>
</formset>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Struts-config.xml:

code:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<action-mappings>
<action path = "/LoginAction"
type = "com.hsc.tlms.action.LoginAction"
name = "LoginForm"
scope = "request"
validate="true"
input = "/JSP/Login.jsp"
>
<forward name="LoginSuccess" path="/HomeAction.do" />
</action>
</action-mappings>
.... .... ....

<plug-in className="org.apache.struts.validator.ValidatorPlugIn">
<set-property property="pathnames"
value="/WEB-INF/validator-rules.xml,/WEB-INF/validation.xml"/>
</plug-in>

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


LoginForm class:

code:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

public class LoginForm extends ValidatorForm{ // getters and setters}

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Login.jsp

code:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<html:form action="LoginAction.do" focus="userId" onsubmit="return validateLoginForm(this)"><table>
<tr> ... ... ... </tr>
</table>
<html:submit property="submit" value="Submit" />
</html:form>
</body>
</html:html>

And <html:javascript formName="LoginForm" /> in the <head> of the jsp page.

Please help

Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
