Hi,

I'm using jquery validate on email inputs that a user can add/subtract fields. I'm not sure how I can get the jquery validate function to validate the email addresses with dynamically generated fields ... Example below of 2 fields but it can be "p_new_x" depending on x amount of field additions.

<input type="email" name="p_new_1" id="p_new_1" class="form-control" placeholder="Enter Email Address" required/>

<input type="email" name="p_new_2" id="p_new_2" class="form-control" placeholder="Enter Email Address" required/>

Open in new window


$("#sharingForm").validate({

        submitHandler: function(form) {

            var data = $("#sharingForm").serialize();

            $.ajax({
                type: "POST",
                url: "app/func/func_sharing.cfc?method=sendInvite",
                data: data,
                cache: false,
                success: function() {
                    refreshSharingContent();
                },
                error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {
                alert(xhr.status);
                alert(thrownError);
                }
            });
        }

    });

something like this (probably a few typos)

$('.form-control').each(function(){
  if(0 == $(this).attr('name').indexOf('p_new'))validateEmail($(this));
});

or use an ereg
if($(this).attr('name').match('^p_new'))

it would be simpler to add a specific class (validateEmail for example) to all form form controls that need email validation
