jQuery Validation not working in Internet Explorer

jQuery Validation plugin was working fine in Firefox and Chrome, but it wouldn’t validate my form in IE7 or IE8 when I submit it.

What’s even more odd is that in both versions Internet Explorer, the validation error labels still come up when fields lose their focus, but it still allows the form submission to go through. In other words, it’s not blocking a form that fails validation from getting submitted.

When you pair jQuery Validator 1.8.0 or 1.7 or lower with anything less than jQuery 1.6, it WILL NOT WORK in Internet Explorer. You have two options.

  1. Upgrade your jQuery Validator to 1.8.1 or higher, or
  2. Downgrade your jQuery library to 1.5.2 or lower

For my case, the solution was ridiculously simple, hopefully you’ll be able to read this post and not waste as much time as I did.

Solution found here: jquery-validation Issue #105

  7. a few financial specialists disregard the area offices, which decrease the estimation of the contributed cash. Regardless of whether you are not intending to move in, the accessibility of the administrations like patio nurseries, schools, emergency clinic, transport, and others can help improve the estimation of the property. The accessibility of such administrations in the area consequently upgrades the estimation of the property. Thus, regardless of whether you need to pay some additional for such properties, it is a superior decision than the one where neighborhood offices are absent.

  8. In the event that you are one of those, who believe that land involves karma, at that point, you should reexamine. Comprehend the round of numbers related with the properties. The present esteem, future degree, and past estimation of the market assume a noteworthy job in getting some answers concerning the chance and the danger of ventures. With the correct methodology, these components help in making the speculation a beyond any doubt shot for the speculator. You should simply adjust every one of the components, for example, the accounts, economy, capital development, ROI, and others.
