I need a simple way to validate a form, basically just checking that the user typed something. Several articles on the web recommended the jQuery Validation plugin, so I just gave it a try.
It seems to work fine, but 1) is it localized and 2) how will it choose the right language?
I assume it's based on how the browser is configured. Currently, I'm running Google Chrome in English: For testing purposes, how can I reconfigure it to check that the jQuery Validation plugin is able to show the error messages ("This field is required", "Please enter a valid email address", etc.) in French? Is this done through Advanced Settings > Languages?
FWIW, the web site only needs to support French and English.
... which works fine with standard browser widgets but doesn't work with jQuery's DatePicker: After filling its input box via the calendar, the validator just stops instead of moving on the rest of the items in the form.
Can someone recommend a good, light, free form validator?
