The code below is javascript to show/hide txtComment based on chkAddComment value. This part works fine.

Now that I have added requireComment validation to txtComment, I need to upgraded this javascript code to bypass validation when chkAddComment  is false.

Question: How this is done?

Thank you.

<script type="text/javascript">

            // to anonymous function are created to help with chkBox functionalities
            window.onload = function () {

                // on document first-time load chkAddComment is false therefore it has to be set to none
                document.getElementById("CommentRow").style.display = (document.getElementById("<%= chkAddComment.ClientID %>").checked) ? "block" : "none";
                document.getElementById("<%= chkAddComment.ClientID %>").onchange = function () {
                    if (this.checked) {
                        document.getElementById("CommentRow").style.display = "block";
                    } else {
                        document.getElementById("CommentRow").style.display = "none";
