Validating a field with info in other fields

9 years 3 months ago #141819 by nanoingegnere
Hi to all,

first of all, I apologize if I'm asking for a solution which has been already provided in another topic, I swear that I have spent 2 hours searching for it, but found nothing :)

I have the following problem:

in the registration form I have to insert a custom field (no problem here, it is a native feature). However this field need a custom validation, based on what is included in other fields. In fact this field can be obtained via an algorithm based on "First Name", "Last Name" and other fields values. I have a JS script which validate this field but i don't know how to apply it to the CB registration form.

Is there a native CB plugin/component which can help me in doing this ?? If yes, where can i find it ?

Otherwise, how can I add this validation to the standard CB registration form ??

Thanks in advance for you kind support.

Best Regards

You'd need to develop a custom plugin to handle this that utilizes CB triggers. Would be quite a complex plugin and would require a page reload before validation could kick in (unless you use JS to do inline validation). Please see tutorials within signature for further information on trigger usage. There is no easy way to accomplish this that I am aware of.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I'm trying to develop this plugin on my own; I hope that I could ask here if I need some help during this task :)

Thanks in advance

To an extent, certainly. Please keep in mind we don't assist with custom development though and are not a consultation site. We can help vaguely as time permits, but best approach is to review the many many existing plugins.
