Validation 1-required not working?????

I'm going crazy. I've used Chonoforms on a few other sites, and had no problem with validation.

This is the first site I've used it in J! 1.0

The validation is only working on 11 - validate-selection

It is not working for 1 - required (not blank) or any of the others. I don't see anything out of the ordinary on my form or in my J! template.

I am using the "prototype" validation library because MooTools is not working.

Any thoughts? My form can be seen here

And here is my form code. Nothing crazy just add some js to populate one of the fields. I've tried it without that js with the same results...
<script src="scripts/cities.js" type="text/javascript" ></script>

Hi webmonkiee,

I think the problem is that you have 'class="inputbox" in your input fields. If you look at the page source code you'll see that these don't show as 'class="required"' which they need to for the validation to work. ChronoForms just isn't clever enough to merge the two class fields into one.

You'll find a suggested fix in this thread.

PS I also notice that some of your style attributes are missing the semicolons eg style="width:250px" should be style="width:250px;" this could cause problems with some browsers.

Thanks!

I always thought you didn't need the semi-colon if it was the last attribute in the style. Thanks!

Hi webmonkiee,

You are correct, sorry. Here's a note from Eric Meyer's CSS Definitive Guide "While it's not technically necessary to follow the last declaration of a rule with a semicolon, it is generally good practice to do so. . . ."
