#37540 closed enhancement (fixed)

validateForm does not validate textarea or select inputs

Reported by: shadyvb's profile shadyvb Owned by: swissspidy's profile swissspidy
Milestone: 4.8 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.6
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: ui, javascript Cc:


validateForm only looks for <input /> elements and ignores select and textarea fields.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Add a select or textarea input to term edit page/form, add 'form-required' class to their wrappers
  • Leave the new field(s) empty
  • Click the submit button

Expected behavior:

  • Form is not submitted, because required fields are not filled out

Actual result:

  • Form validation passes and form is submitted

Recommended change:

  • Change input:visible to :input:visible so it covers select and textarea as well.
