jQuery-Validation-Engine-> validating slider position

I cannot make a slider validate using this plugin, Can anyone help out here?

I've tried putting the validation on the hidden field and on the slider div but it won't  validate in either case.

HTML:
    As an anti-spam measure, please drag the slider below to the right until the 
    color changes.<span class="required" id="slider_required">(required)</span>
    <input type="hidden" name="CSlider" id="CSlider" value="0" />
    <br />
    <div id="slider" class="validate[required,funcCall[sliderCheck]]"></div>

Open in new window

Javacript:
    $(document).ready(function () {
        $("#slider").slider({
            value: 0,
            min: 0,
            max: 1,
            step: 1,
            slide: function (event, ui) {
                $("#CSlider").val(ui.value);
                // Don't need the color change for the thumb
                if (ui.value == 1) {
                    $("#slider").children("a").css("background", "#48B");
                    $("#slider").css("background", "#F7F6F1");
                } else {
                    $("#slider").children("a").css("background", "#F7F6F1");
                    $("#slider").css("background", "#F7F6F1");
                }
            }
        });
    });

    function sliderCheck(field, rules, i, options) {
        if(field.val() != 1) {
            return options.allrules.validate2field.alertText;
        }
    }

Ok, finally figured it out. Posting for others to see.

After the slider is initialized, I need to bind the anchor's blur to my validation function:
$("#slider").children("a").bind("blur", sliderCheck);

Open in new window

Then I show the Prompt on the slider div:
function sliderCheck() {
    if($("#CommentSlider").val() != 1) {
        $('#slider').validationEngine('showPrompt', 'Please move the slider to the right before submitting the form');
    }
}
