Ugly Pink Error Messages

  1. When users press the submit button and an error is made, a pink ugly box is being displayed which also breaks the fixed height iframe where the form resides in.

    Is there a better way to handle error messages, such as an AJAX popup which appears when the user press the submit button, loading before the content submission.

    All i want to capture really is empty name, valid email address and password confirmation.

    many thanks,
    Andy

  2. I have not seen anyone put the validation errors in a popup, although that has been asked for recently. You might need to add client side validation to the form, before the form is submitted. There are jQuery scripts to do this. Here is one article detailing several ways to do it before the form is submitted: http://speckyboy.com/2009/12/17/10-useful-jquery-form-validation-techniques-and-tutorials-2/

  3. This looks useful, i will need to look into this further if you don't have a quick hack handy..

    I think a popup or an inline message before the form is submitted is a better way of handling errors and i have seen all modern forms taking this or a similar approach.
