Hi, I need to add a method to the JQuery validation plugin. I have this piece of javascript code that I want to add into my JQuery validation. How do I do that?

<title>Check Norwegian NIN</title>
  <script type="text/javascript">
function checkNIN(o) {
	var nin = o.value;
	if (nin.length != 11) {
		return "must be 11 chars";
	}
	var cc0 = '0'.charAt(0);
	var cw1 = [3, 7, 6, 1, 8, 9, 4, 5, 2];
	var cw2 = [5, 4, 3, 2, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2];
	// check digit 1
	var ws1 = 0;
	for (var n=0; n<cw1.length; n++) {
		ws1 += cw1[n] * (nin.charAt(n) - cc0);
	}
	var cd1 = 11 - (ws1 % 11);
	if (cd1 == 10) {
		return "invalid number, check digit 1 would be 10";
	}
	if (cd1 == 11) {
		cd1 = 0;
	}
	if (nin.charAt(cw1.length) - cc0 != cd1) {

	}
	// check digit 2
	var ws2 = 0;
	for (var n=0; n<cw2.length; n++) {
		ws2 += cw2[n] * (nin.charAt(n) - cc0);
	}
	var cd2 = 11 - (ws2 % 11);
	if (cd2 == 10) { // assuming this is needed

	if (cd2 == 11) {
		cd2 = 0;
	}
	if (nin.charAt(cw2.length) - cc0 != cd2) {
		return "check digit 2 should be " + cd2;
	}

	// check age
	var century = -1, numyear = Number(nin.substr(4,2)), numindiv = Number(nin.substr(6,3));

	}

	var check18 = new Date(century * 100 + numyear + 18, Number(nin.substr(2,2))-1, Number(nin.substr(0,2)), 0, 0, 0, 0);
	alert (check18);
	if (check18 > new Date()) {

	return "ok!";

line number 12-79 can be placed in a separate file and include that as plugin

Hi. I want the code to work together with the validation plugin, because I have a range og other input elements in the form that already use the Jquery validator. I thought I would write it this way, and include the "jQuery.validator.addMethod"  sentence:
 $ (document). ready (function () {
         $ ("# formid"). validate ();
     });

You don't need to do anything. You just need to call your function from jquery ready function.
