Hey, I'm upgrading from an older version and some of the commands have changed. What I am wondering is how to I "register" a form? Can you give an example of smartyvalidate with a registered form?

Command in Question: register_form

Thanks to anyone who replies.

Also, can you show a example of "{$validate.default.is_error}".
I though all I had to do was put it in the template and it'd show either 1 or 0. But that isn't working...

SmartyValidate::register_form('myform');

That will register a form. Then in the template you use:

{validate form="myform" ... }

And when you post the form:

if(SmartyValidate::is_valid($_POST,'myform')) { ... }

will execute if the form info is valid.

The {validate.myform.is_error} is a boolean value, so (I think) it will display "1" when true and "" (not 0) when false.

Okay, do I do the set register_form before or after the if(empty($_POST){

I assume before or just after the connect command...

set it right before displaying the form. each time you call register_form() it essentially "resets" it. (use the latest CVS to be sure, reset_form() was removed) Don't call it between form submits though, just upon the initial form entry (or you leave the form and come back)

You only have to put the form name in the validate tags:

{validate form="myform" ... }

After you submit the form, you use is_valid() with the $_POST info :

if ( SmartyValidate::is_valid($_POST, 'myform') ) { ... }

Is there any way to have it validate using mutiple methods? Like for the password have it match the password and confirm password and have it set a min and max length?

Use multiple {validate ... } tags on the same form element. They are checked in order.
