#JQuery Validation Groups for WebForms

A plug-in that takes the pain out of using JQuery validation with ASP.Net WebForms.

Enables "validation groups" using JQuery Validation plugin with ASP.Net WebForms.

For more information please see [blog post] (http://www.bradoncode.com/blog/2012/08/jquery-validation-groups-for-webforms.html).

##What Problem Does it Solve?

It stops this from happening where the entire form is validated (assuming the 'Sign Up' button is clicked):

two forms

Get Started

Replace the validate bind the validate event from:

$("#aspForm").validate();

To:

$("#aspForm").validateWebForm();

To create a validation group, add the class "form" to the containing element. Add the class "submit" to the element that should validate upon submit. Now these will be validated seperately, even though they are within the same form:

<fieldset class="form" id="signup">
<asp:Textbox ID="uxUsername" runat="server" CssClass="required" />
<asp:Button ID="uxRegister" runat="server" Text="Sign Up" CssClass="submit" />
</fieldset>

That's it!
