Hello,

I would like to know how to use a button to validate a form before they are directed to the next section. It is not a submit button. <input type="button" class="next" value="next" />

The fields I want to validate are
first 'slide'
- name
- phone

second 'slide'
- address
- age

third 'slide'
- type_drop
- category

javascript
	<script type="text/javascript">
	
	jQuery().ready(function(){
		
		var wizard = $("#wizard").accordion({
			header: '.title2',
			event: false,
		});
		
		var wizardButtons = $([]);
		$("div.title2", wizard).each(function(index) {
			wizardButtons = wizardButtons.add($(this)
			.next()
			.children(":button")
			.filter(".next, .previous")
			.click(function() {
				wizard.accordion("activate", index + ($(this).is(".next") ? 1 : -1))
			}));
		});
		
		// bind to change event of select to control first and seconds accordion
		// similar to tab's plugin triggerTab(), without an extra method
		var accordions = jQuery('#wizard');
		
		jQuery('#switch select').change(function() {
			accordions.accordion("activate", this.selectedIndex-1 );
		});
		jQuery('#close').click(function() {
			accordions.accordion("activate", -1);
		});
		jQuery('#switch2').change(function() {
			accordions.accordion("activate", this.value);
		});
		jQuery('#enable').click(function() {
			accordions.accordion("enable");
		});
		jQuery('#disable').click(function() {
			accordions.accordion("disable");
		});
		jQuery('#remove').click(function() {
			accordions.accordion("destroy");
			wizardButtons.unbind("click");
		});
	});
	</script>
