Well, since v2 is taking longer than planned, I'm releasing build 138. There's a few fixes that I've made and I've added a couple of useful properties. The highlight of this build is that you can now toggle off validation for a form by setting the qForm object's _skipValidation property to true, the validation rules will be ignored. This will be useful for those users looking for a way to "Save & Exit" from a form, without applying the validation rules. Here's a list of what's changed:
[-] Fixed a bug in the is/validateFormat() method which affected masks which contained 3 or fewer characters. [-] Fixed bug in Opera v7.x where single checkbox elements where not working w/the setValue()/getValue() methods. I had fixed this in the v2 builds already. [-] Fixed bug w/validateLengthGT and LT if the value was equal to the specified argument than no error was thrown (and it should be). [+] Added qFormAPI.styleAttribute which allows you to specify a single property to apply a style change to. This defaults to "backgroundColor". This provides a quick CSS hack until v2 is released. If you change the qFormAPI.errorColor to a valid CSS property value you can do more than change the color. For example: qFormAPI.styleAttribute = "border"; qFormAPI.errorColor = "1px dotted red"; NOTE: This is experimental at best, you need test in different browser. [+] Added obj._skipValidation property which allows you to toggle validation off/on for an entire form. Setting the property to true will cause the validation routines to be skipped for that form object. [+] Added the validation_addon.js library. At this point, this contains one additional validation method called validateAtLeastOne(), which you can use to confirm that at least one field out of a list of fields contain a value.
As always, you can download the latest version of qForms from http://www.pengoworks.com/qforms/download/.
