Hi, I am having some problems using the validator.

I am creating a shopping cart procedure and have multiple forms posting to each other.

The first form works fine, then i submit it to the same page with a different form and then it doesn't validate. Crying or Very sad

Has anybody come across the same problem or has an idea how I can fix this. The code I use is inside a class and quite big, so i will put some code here which is relevant.

Code:

      private function step_1(){   
         if(empty($_POST)){            
            SmartyValidate::connect($this->smarty, true);      
            SmartyValidate::register_validator('v_initials','initials','notEmpty');
         }
         # fetch template
         return $this->smarty->fetch('frontend-order-step1.tpl');
      }   
      
      private function step_1_shipping(){      
         
         # post not empty
         SmartyValidate::connect($this->smarty, true);      
         SmartyValidate::register_validator('v_alt_initials','alt_initials','notEmpty');
         
         $this->smarty->assign('processStep', $this->processStep);         
         
         # fetch template
         return $this->smarty->fetch('frontend-order-step1-shipping.tpl');
      
      }
            
      /* Processing of steps */
      private function process_step_1(){
         
         #smarty validate connect
         SmartyValidate::connect($this->smarty);   

         if(SmartyValidate::is_valid($_POST)){
               
               #smarty disconnect
               SmartyValidate::disconnect();
                                             
            }else{
               $this->smarty->assign('formvalue', $_POST);
               $this->nextStep = $this->processStep; // process itself again
            }
         }
      }
      
      private function process_step_1_shipping(){
                  
         #smarty validate connect
         SmartyValidate::connect($this->smarty);      

         #smarty validate
         if(SmartyValidate::is_valid($_POST)){
            
               # smarty disconnect
               #SmartyValidate::disconnect();
            
         }else{               
               var_dump('not valid');
               
               $this->smarty->assign('formvalue', $_POST);
               $this->nextStep = $this->processStep; // process itself again
            }         
         }
      }


I have a piece of code that keeps on track which step must be showed.
So on the first submit if valid it fetch step 1_shipping else it shows step 1 again

piece of template code from the first form

Code:


   <form method='post' action='' class='contentual_shop_form' enctype="multipart/form-data" id='{$function}' name='step1'>
   <!--required//-->
   <input type='hidden' name='__plugin' value='{$class}' />
   <input type='hidden' name='__invoke' value='{$function}' />
   <input type='hidden' name='__processStep' value='{$processStep}' />
   
   <p class="error">
   {if count($params) > 0}
      {t}One or more errors occured when validating your information.{/t}<br />
      {t}Please check your input.{/t}
   {/if}
   </p>
      
   <fieldset class="billing">
      <legend>{t}Billing Information{/t}</legend>
      <p>
         <label for="initials" id="lbl_initials" title="{t}Your initials is a required field{/t}.">{t}Initials{/t}: *</label>
         <input type="text" name="initials" value='{$formvalue.initials}' class="{literal}{required:true}{/literal}" title="{t}Your initials is a required field{/t}." />
         <span class="error">{validate id="v_initials" message="Your initials is a required field."}</span>
      </p>


and the second form

Code:
   <form method='post' action='' class='contentual_shop_form' enctype="multipart/form-data" id='{$function}' name='step1.5'>
   <!--required//-->
   <input type='hidden' name='__plugin' value='{$class}' />
   <input type='hidden' name='__invoke' value='{$function}' />
   <input type='hidden' name='__processStep' value='{$processStep}' />
   
   <p class="error">
   {if count($params) > 0}
      {t}One or more errors occured when validating your information.{/t}<br />
      {t}Please check your input.{/t}
   {/if}
   </p>
   
   <fieldset class="shipping">
       <legend>{t}Alternative Shipping Information{/t}</legend>
      <p>
         <label for="alt_initials" id="lbl_initials" title="{t}Your initials is a required field{/t}.">{t}Initials{/t}: *</label>
         <input type="text" name="alt_initials" value='{$formvalue.alt_initials}' class="{literal}{required:true}{/literal}" title="{t}Your initials is a required field{/t}." />
          <span class="error">{validate id="v_alt_initials" message="Your initials is a required field."}</span>
        </p>


What ever I try, I keep on getting a false second validation.
When I output the session values I will see that the validators has been registered.

Thanks! I realy hope somebody knows what this could be cause it's driving me crazy Rolling Eyes

This might have something to do with it:

Code:
SmartyValidate::connect($this->smarty, true);


That second parameter resets the session. Do not pass true during the validation, only on the very first invocation of the form.

Also, get rid of the disconnect() calls until you have it all working. Sometimes that can throw you for a loop.
