Release: Validation Plugin 1.5.2

An update for the jQuery validation plugin is available. There is a small code fix, a new supported locale (slovak) and most notably, a new demo featuring integration with jQuery UI tabs and grouping selects.

  • Fixed messages in additional-methods.js for maxWords, minWords, and rangeWords to include call to $.format
  • Fixed value passed to methods to exclude carriage return (r), same as jQuery’s val() does
  • Added slovak (sk) localization
  • Added demo for intergration with jQuery UI tabs
  • Added selects-grouping example to tabs demo (see second tab, birthdate field)

As usual, support is available via:

  • Please post questions to the jQuery discussion list, putting [validate] into the subject of your post, making it easier to spot it and respond quickly. Keep your question short and succinct and provide code when possible; a testpage makes it much more likely that you get an useful answer in no time.
  • Please post bug reports and other contributions (enhancements, features, eg. new validation methods) to the jQuery bug tracker (requires registration). Please put [validate] into the title of a ticket.

    Hi Jörn,

    fantastic plugin!

    The download on your site still contains 1.5.1 – while on the jQuery plugins repository it contains the updated version. The name of the file, however, is a little misleading:

    Thanks for your work!

  3. @Bernd: Good call, fixed the file on my site. I don’t control the file names on though, can’t fix that.

    @Joel: The plugin heavily relies on a form element, so thats currently not possible. I have some ideas for subform validation, but not quite there yet.

    The subform validation would be fantastic. I’ve been struggling with how to use the validation easily on an form with a progression of questions that are divided into divs all on the same form. Would appreciate any suggestions or BKMs. thanks for the badass plugin.
