Valideater is a lightweight jQuery/HTML5 form validator that displays custom error / alert messages next to the invalid form elements when typing or clicking on the submit button.

Validation rules supported:

  • alpha: Value must be letters
  • alphanumeric: Letters and numbers required
  • characters4: At least 4 characters please
  • dob: Please give a valid date of birth
  • Email: Invalid email
  • matches: These values do not match
  • numeric: Value must be numeric
  • postcode: Invalid postcode
  • radio: Please choose an option
  • required: This information is required

Basic usages:

1. Download the jQuery Valideater plugin and include the jquery.valideater.js script on the web page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.valideater-0.2.2.js"></script>

2. Add the validation rules to the form fields using data-vldtr attribute as follow.

<input type="text" placeholder="First name" data-vldtr="alpha">

3. Customize the error message using data-vldtr-RuleName attribute.

<input type="text" placeholder="First name" 
       data-vldtr="alpha"
       data-vldtr-alpha="Custom message"
       >

4. The plugin allows you to apply multiple validation rules at a time.

<input type="text" placeholder="Username" 
       data-vldtr="alphanumeric,characters4"
       >

5. Prevent a specific form field from displaying alert message.

<input type="text" placeholder="Username" 
       data-vldtr="alphanumeric,characters4"
       data-vldtr-alert="false"
       >

6. Finally, you need to call the function on the form tag to active the validator.

$('form').valideater();
