I finally found a post (copied below) with one solution WITHOUT form builder, but can’t get the syntax right / don’t know how to do it WITH CFormBuilder (which is essential)?
Here’s the other post: http://www.yiiframework.com/forum/index.php?/topic/11888-disable-ajax-validation-temporarily/
I’ve been trying for hours now disable ajax validation for certain fields and finally came across this post but I can’t get it to work with form builder and don’t want to have to manually write all 10+ fields… How do you set the “error” or “enableAjaxValidation” property within a CForm array?
I’ve tried the following to no avail:
'type'=>'text', 'size'=>10, //'enableAjaxValidation'=>false, //doesn't work //'error'=>array($model, 'time_start', '', 'enableAjaxValidation'=>false), //doesn't work //'error'=>array('enableAjaxValidation'=>false), //doesn't work //'error'=>$enableAjaxValidation=false, //doesn't work //$enableAjaxValidation=false, //doesn't work //'enableAjaxValidation'=false, //doesn't work //'error'=>'enableAjaxValidation=>false', //doesn't work ),
