[Pro] Validation Action Suite

I’ve just noticed that the Validation suite Action does not work on a web form “drop down” menu item in (definitely) IE6 and I think it does not work on the clients IE7 either.

It works OK in Safari and Firefox Mac

Anyone come across this before?

Could you post a link to the page where it doesn’t work? Also, how (in
what manner) does it fail? Does it give false positives (everything is
okay, even when it isn’t) or false negatives?

Here’s a test form page

You need to select a town rather than leave a “-”

On mac perfect, on IE the warning displays regardless of menu selection

(This test form does not work its just enough to show the problem

Can anyone test this link on a PC on IE7?

Selecting anything but the “-” dash should not create an error message when the form button is pressed

On IE6 this whatever is selected creates the pop-up error. On anything Mac seems to work correctly.

So why would PC not work?

Not sure. It is sure broken in IE6, don’t have 7 to try with.

One thing that you might try is to make sure that each of the options
in your picking list has both a label and a value. In Freeway, these
are named Choice and Value. You can make them exactly the same as one
another, but you really need both of them in order for your server to
do anything with the result of submitting the form, so you should
tailor the value to whatever format you need to have arrive at the
server.

I just tested it on IE7 and I get the following error message:

“This form was not submitted; Venue : needs an option selecting”

I tried selecting different options on the drop down and always got the message.
