    Form validation


    I have a form I am using in a partial view (a password change form). I have written out a nice set of jquery validation rules, sitting in a script on the main page (not the partial). This is completely ignored. I now understand that I have to use jQuery unobtrusive validation as well. Is this correct?

    I am unwilling to use Umbraco Forms because (a) I can't afford it b) I don't see why I should need it.

    I enclose my code

    Model public class ChangePasswordModel { [Required] [DisplayName("New Password")] public string NewPassword { get; set; } [Required] [DisplayName("Confirm Password")] public string VerifyPassword { get; set; } } View

    @using ElyRunners.Models.CrudModels @inherits UmbracoTemplatePage @{ Layout = "Master.cshtml"; } @Html.Partial("~/Views/Partials/ChangePassword.cshtml", new ChangePasswordModel())

    /* The passwords must match */
    $().ready(function() {
        // validate the changePasswordForm
            rules: {
                newPassword : {
                    minlength: 5
                    minlength: 5,
                    equalTo: "#newPassword"
            messages: {
                newPassword: {
                    required: "Please provide a password",
                    minlength: "Your password must be at least 5 characters long"
                verifyPassword: {
                    equired: "Please provide a password",
                    minlength: "Your password must be at least 5 characters long",
                    equalTo: "Please enter the same password as above"

    Partial View

    @using ElyRunners.Controllers

    @model ElyRunners.Models.CrudModels.ChangePasswordModel

    @using (Html.BeginUmbracoForm


    public class ChangePasswordController: SurfaceController
       public ActionResult ChangePassword(ChangePasswordModel model)
            var memberService = Services.MemberService;
            var membershipHelper = new MembershipHelper(UmbracoContext.Current);
            var loggedInMember = membershipHelper.GetCurrentMember();
            var member = memberService.GetById(loggedInMember.Id);
            return Redirect("/");

    Got it. It's about relying on Data annotations and enabling client validation in the web.config. Then it all works really well. No need for any jquery validation scripting.
