Hi,

I use to work with jQuery validation plugin, but as I have seen in this blog you provide custom validation based on aler() method. Can you include jQuery validation plugin in your tool. It'll be really handy.

Hello, steve4ride.

You can add jQuery validate script to page, just upload script file to SharePoint library like Styles Library, then open JavaScript window of SharePoint Forms Designer

Put following code to code editor:


//add jQuery validate script to page

var s = document.createElement("script");

s.type = "text/javascript";

s.src = "<Link to script>";

$("head").append(s);



Replace <Link to script> with link to uploaded script. After that you can use validation plugin as you use to.

It's better to use HTML-control to reference external scripts.

Can you give an example what you mean by HTML control?
