Hello,

I'm trying to use jquery validation highlight method but I get an error:

highlight: function(element, errorClass) {
     if (element.attr("name") == "aupairLanguageList")
        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").addClass("error");
  },
  unhighlight: function(element, errorClass) {
     if (element.attr("name") == "aupairLanguageList")
        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").removeClass("error");
  }


"element.attr is not a function"

Any ideas?

Thanks

element is the DOM element.
You have to create a jquery object to use attr method
Use $(element).attr()

Try it like this:
highlight: function(element, errorClass) {

     if ($(element).attr("name") == "aupairLanguageList")

        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").addClass("error");

  },

  unhighlight: function(element, errorClass) {

     if ($(element).attr("name") == "aupairLanguageList")

        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").removeClass("error");

  }

Open in new window

Here's the code
You could also refer to the name attribute of the DOM element directly using element.name
// Using jquery

highlight: function(element, errorClass) {

     if ($(element).attr("name") == "aupairLanguageList")

        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").addClass("error");

  },

  unhighlight: function(element, errorClass) {

     if ($(element).attr("name") == "aupairLanguageList")

        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").removeClass("error");

  }
 

//using DOM

highlight: function(element, errorClass) {

     if (element.name == "aupairLanguageList")

        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").addClass("error");

  },

  unhighlight: function(element, errorClass) {

     if (element.name == "aupairLanguageList")

        $("#multiSelect-aupairLanguageList-title").removeClass("error");

  }
