I have searched through the documentation for jquery validation (, but although I am sure what I need exists, I just cant find it.

I have a form, validating with jquery validation.  All good.  But I can't submit the form from a submit button (<input type=submit...).  I need to submit the form from an anchor (<a ... ), with the following javascript to submit the form (;).

The problem is that submitting the form this way doesn't fire the validation, and I can't work out how to fire off the validation script programatically.

So, my question is.. How do I execute jquery validation programatically?

Thanks in advance for all help.
