View Full Version : ExtJS validation and plain forms

28 Jun 2010, 5:21 PM
I'm going to be using ExtJS in a project that's going to have quite a few normal forms. ExtJS won't be controlling the layout, but it will be used extensively for widgets.

I'd ideally like to leverage the form validation that ExtJS already has to validate these forms. I've worked extensively with ExtJS in the past where its controlled the UI and created widgets for "normal" sites using "renderTo", but I'm not sure if validating plain old forms is currently possible without quite a bit of extra work. I could include JQuery and its validate plugin which would get things up and running fast, but I'd like to stay away from including multiple frameworks and just use ExtJS since it suits the project best.
