I have been playing with the
gform_validation hook for my custom validation and this is all fine and dandy. I just wanted to put in a request for simple validation for all form fields. For example if when I added the "Name" field into my form I had simple validation options like alpha, alpha-numeric, numeric, etc. I also know some fields like number have a max and min but adding a min length to all fields by default would be nice. Using the
gform_validation hook isnt' all that difficult but I just think it would be way simpler (especially to the non-tech user) to have this done in the form window. Correct me if I'm wrong but I couldn't find a simple way to do this in 1.5.
Code Igniter has a great list of the sorta validation I'm looking for. (http://codeigniter.com/user_guide/libraries/form_validation.html#rulereference ) I feel like Gravity form is half way there with "required" and "unique" This could even be done is such a way as adding options to a drop down where you could select the validation option from a dropdown then click "+" and if you wanted to remove the option click "-" I feel that validation done in a way that is simple to the everyday user would greatly improve this product.
