Hi Experts I need your help in fixing up my jquery UI form submission validation to work with jquery Validation Plugin. Currently the Jquery UI code i am using for submission is the below:

submitUsers = function() {
    
    $('#tabs_users>#ui-tabs-2').on('click', '.submitusers', function() {
        var dataString = $("form").serialize();
        $.ajax({
            type: "POST",
            url: "save.cfm?mode=useraction" + '&submission=' + Math.random(),
            cache: false,
            data: dataString,
            success: function(result) {
                var i = result;
                $('#tabs_users>#ui-tabs-2').off('click', '.submitusers');
                if ($.trim(i) == 'Warning! Country with Same Name already Exists' || $.trim(i) == 'Warning! Code for the Entered Country Exists for another Country' || $.trim(i) == 'Warning! Code and Country already Exists') {
                    $("#AddCountry").html(result).addClass('text-warning');
                    $("#AddCountry").addClass('text-warning').fadeIn("slow");
                    setTimeout(function() {
                        $("#AddCountry").addClass('text-warning').fadeOut("slow");
                    }, 3000);
                } else if ($.trim(i) == 'Cool! Processed Successfully') {
                    $("#AddCountry").html(result).addClass('text-success');
                    $("#AddCountry").addClass('text-success').fadeIn("slow");
                    setTimeout(function() {
                        $("#AddCountry").addClass('text-success').fadeOut("slow");
                    }, 3000);
                } else {
                    $("#AddCountry").html(result).addClass('text-error');
                    $("#AddCountry").addClass('text-error').fadeIn("slow");
                    setTimeout(function() {
                        $("#AddCountry").addClass('text-error').fadeOut("slow");
                    }, 3000);
                }
            }
        });
    });
}

Ok,
Using http://bassistance.de/jquery-plugins/jquery-plugin-validation/, you need to include the plugin
Attached the validation to the page:

$("#adduser").validate();

add a class to the form fields, so for email address:

<input type="text" class="required email" name="email" id="email" placeholder="Email Address" class="input-block-level" />

and that will validate this field, you will just need to disable the button then until the form is valid

add it before,
on keyup call $("#adduser").valid() this will return T/F and then based on this enable/disable the submit button

I wouldn't wrap that click function again in a function so take it simply out of your submitUsers function and let jquery handle the click event.

The plugin that darren-w- suggested is really cool and simple it is just your validation handling that is to be refined. What you want is to send the ajax request only on positive validation. This is automatically done by the plugin. No need to programme that it will abort the submission of the form automatically for you.

I've played around with it in jsfiddle and created this example. It is working for me and validating.

You're doing a validation in your ajax with code that's coming from the server side. So it is not possible to validate data which is processed by the server without submitting the form.

What you can do is to populate the form with the primary submitted values stored in your i variable and sent that back to the form when thir first if clause and or the else is true.

Or:

What would make more sense is to submit that form to the same page the form is on (without ajax involved) and on the server side redirect to a success page if data was alright, or just stay on the original form page and 'paste' original input values in the form, so the user doesn't have to input it again and display error messages accordingly.

Hope I got the point for you.

Good Luck anyways!
