Form validation in mvc

Hi

I am doing client side validation in mvc4 razor

which is working fine, but i want to do an ajax call once

the form is valid,then it is not validating properly,

i am using following scripts


 <script src="~/Scripts/jquery-1.7.1.min.js"></script>
 <script src="~/Scripts/jquery.validate.js"></script>
 <script src="~/Scripts/jquery.validate.unobtrusive.js"></script>

 @using (Html.BeginForm("EmployeePost", "Employee", FormMethod.Post, new { id="frm"}))
 {
 // i have necessary controls and submit button as follows

   <input type="submit" value="submit" />
 
 }


 <script>
            $(function () {
                $('#frm').submit(function () {
                    if ($(this).valid()) {
                        alert('the form is valid');
                    // goes with ajax call
                    }
                    else {
                        alert('Invalid');
                    }
                });
            });
</script>

now here , if i don't enter required field values ,it is
giving me correct invalid message, but even after entering all

the required field values still it is giving invalid message,

i.e it is giving invalid message all the time, so, it is not

validating properly,

could you please suggest me what is the wrong in above code.

           Many thanks.

Hi

I found  the problem,

Actually I have EmployeeId which is integer type in the model class

even though it is not decorated with required field attribute

as it is not nullable type , it is expecting the value

so, the form is not validating.
