Field Validator

Text entry fields, checkboxes, select fields, password entry fields are always present on websites - be it for authentication forms, or creation of new email accounta, new user accounts, payment forms, surveys, - in basically every single case where the communication with the user is required, and information must be sent by user to the site. It is very useful to make sure that the data entered by the user follow the correct format. Field Validator offers exactly that: verification of entered data. With Field Validator, you can assign multiple validation rules to a data entry field and notify the user whenever the information entered does not meet your validation rules. When a text field, a select field, a checkbox or a password field fails to meet some of the assigned validation rules, they are highlighted in a different color, an icon appears to the right side and a bubble is displayed with explanatory text. Field Validator prevents invalid information from being sent to your server.

The guys that support this extension are really awesome. I'm not a web developer expert, but the support guy has guided me, step by step, with very simple examples to validate my form fields.

I have tested the Field Validator with practically all form fields with good results. I can’t associate the Field Validator with a hidden field, but I think that isn’t a big deal since I don’t want an error bubble beside an invisible field ;-)
