Quick Tip #4: fValidator – Javascript Form Validator

6 06 2007

For the web developers out there who spend a lot of time doing code on form validation, this little piece of “open-source” script might help. It’s called fValidator and it was created by Fabio Zendhi Nagao.Here’s a little quote from Fabio regarding his script:

Nowadays everybody knows that javascript can be used to validate input data in HTML forms before sending off the content to a server. Despite of that, when there are many fields in the form, the JavaScript validation becomes too complex and boring to code. That’s why fValidator exists, with it form validations are many times easier.

I specifically like the fact that it automatically validates your fields as you type your data – well, actually it’s not as you type, but as you move to other input fields. It also makes use of iMask, which is a tool for masking your input text fields or textarea fields. For instance, if you are expecting an input in this format: _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _, the input text field will display those characters as you type (see the attached screen shot for understanding). Aside from displaying those characters, it also restricts the input of letters if you only want numbers, and vice-versa.This tool really becomes helpful if you are creating registration forms for sites, or any other types of form for that matter. I personally am not bothered by using other people’s scripts to make my life easier. It’s really practical.Hopefully one of these days I might be able to contribute my share to the open-source community as well.
