Currently I use the onclick event on form button to change a hidden form variable and then submit the form. The hidden variable is used to determine which fusebox action to execute. I would like to incorporate jquery form validation, but cannot work out the best way to achieve this given the current approach to form submission. Any assistance or advice would be much appreciated.

There's an amazing form validation plugin for jQuery here:

Once you have the validation set up, all you'd have to do is do

if ($('#formID').valid())
  //do form submission

onSubmit may be a better cadidate for this purpose than onclick.

To bring thogether both of experts above, you would have to use the code:
function checkForm(){
   // here you would have to check for valid fields
   // throught ajax request or inline
