i have a text box that i'm trying to make sure has contents before the user clicks submit. i've followed the instruction in FP help, but does not seem to want to work. when i made validation rules, it added this code:

<!--webbot bot="Validation" S-Display-Name="Please enter a value for the subject field." B-Value-Required="TRUE" I-Minimum-Length="1" I-Maximum-Length="50" -->

i think i'm doing this right, but it's a no go. any ideas?

It won't work until it runs through a server that uses FP extensions. You can't check it in FP, that won't do it. You can't use FILE/OPEN on the browser. That won't work either. It MUST run through a server, AND the server MUST have FP extensions.

Easier to use a standard javascript validation routine. That works for mostly everything, with NO server use, NO FP extensions, and NO problems. www.javascriptsource.com has a lot of them. Pick the one that fits your needs and follow the directions. You WILL need to edit the code YOURSELF -- no WYSI(N)WYG editor handles javascript correctly. You can use HTML view in FP, but make sure to follow the instructions as to where to put the code, and it's picky -- case has to be correct, punctuation has to be correct, etc.

But it will work. ;-)

No, FP doesn't generate much client side stuff. Most of it uses FP extensions, so it doesn't work without that.
