XMod Pro Module Kit - DotNetNuke Contact Us Form with jQuery Validation & Messaging
As an example kit to show off the flexibility of XMod Pro templates when creating module items for DotNetNuke like a contact form or feedback form, we have put together an example using the jQuery Validation Engine
While everyone loves the easy-to-use, built-in validation and messaging that is default in XMod Pro when working with forms, we sometimes get requests for examples using more advanced jQuery styles and validation.
This demo shows elements of XMod Pro and jQuery such as:
- XMod Pro Form Elements - TextBox, DropdownList, TextArea
- XMod Pro TextArea form element displays available character countdown and max limit
- Fieldset and Legend form markup / structure
- Enhanced jQuery popup validation
Use this as a base code to create your own customized form module by adding in your questions and form fields, or use it as a resource for tips and tricks for building your own XMod Pro solution!
