    cfinput validation not working - how do I debug?

    Olivia Crazy Horse Community Member

      I just need to make the field required, so I have this :

       

      <cfinput type="text" name="tracking_number" required="yes" message="Carrier Tracking Number is required.">

       

       

      However, when I just click submit, the form submits and the validation does not work. What is wrong with my code ?

       

      I also have some javasript validation, so on cfform, I have this :

       

      <cfform action="closeItem.cfm" method="post" name="closeItemForm" onSubmit="return ValidateForm()">

       

      But I don't think the onSubmit will override the cfinput validation, will it ?

       

      Seems simple enough, but I just cannot see what the problem is.
