- consider a field-validator object that encapsulates a single element and all methods working on it
- document min/max/range methods for checkboxes/selects
/**
* Return false, if the element is

- css references

- http://paularmstrongdesigns.com/projects/awesomeform/
- http://dnevnikeklektika.com/uni-form/
- consider validation on page load, disabling required-checks
- completely rework showErrors: manually settings errors is currently extremely flawed and utterly useless, eg. errors disappear if some other validation is triggered
- document focusInvalid()
- document validation lifecycle: setup (add event handlers), run validation (prepare form, validate elements, display errors/submit form)
-> show where the user can hook in via callbacks
- AND dependency: specify multiple expressions as an array
- add custom events for form and elements instead of more callbacks (additional options/callbacks)
- beforeValidation: Callback, called before doing any validation
- beforeSubmit: Callback, called before submitting the form (default submit or calling submitHandler, if specified)
- animations!!
- ajax validation:
- in combination with autocomplete (mustmatch company name, fill out address details, validate required)
- validate zip code in comparison to address, if match and state is missing, fill out state
- strong password check/integration: http://phiras.wordpress.com/2007/04/08/password-strength-meter-a-jquery-plugin/
- stop firefox password manager to popup before validation - check mozilla bug tracker?
- overload addMethod with a Option-variant:
$.validator.addMethod({
name: "custom",
message: "blablabla",
parameteres: false,
handler: function() { ... }
});
Examples:
- wordpress comment form, make it a drop-in method
- ajaxForm() integration
- ajaxSubmit with rules-option, more/less options to ajaxSubmit
- watermark integration http://digitalbush.com/projects/watermark-input-plugin
- datepicker integration
- timepicker integration ( http://labs.perifer.se/timedatepicker/ )
- integration with CakePHP ( https://trac.cakephp.org/ticket/2359 )
- integration with tabs: http://www.netix.sk/forms/test.html
- integration with rich-text-editors (FCKEditor, Codepress)

---
- attachValidation, removeValidation, validate (with UI), valid (without UI)
- (re)move current addMethod implementation
- move rules plugin option
- move metadata support
- make validate method chainable
-> provide an accessor for the validator if necessary at all
- move a few default methods to additions, eg. dateXXX, creditcard, definitely accept
