How to use client side validation in yii 1.1.7(example needed)

can any one give me an example on how to integrate the client side validation in yii…

[color=#222222][font=Arial, sans-serif][size=4]<?php $form = $this->beginWidget('CActiveForm', array(    'id'=>'user-form',    'enableAjaxValidation'=>true,    'enableClientValidation'=>true,    'focus'=>array($model,'firstName'),)); ?>[/size][/font][/color]

Then create the ActiveForm and it will use the rules from the Model

<div class="wide form">

<?php $form=$this->beginWidget('CActiveForm', array(




)); ?>

	<p class="note">Fields with <span class="required">*</span> are required.</p>

	<?php echo $form->errorSummary($model); ?>

	<div class="row">

		<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'loc_name'); ?>

		<?php echo $form->textField($model,'loc_name',array('size'=>60,'maxlength'=>60)); ?>

		<?php echo $form->error($model,'loc_name'); ?>


	<div class="row">

		<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'loc_address'); ?>

		<?php echo $form->textArea($model,'loc_address',array('rows'=>3, 'cols'=>50,'size'=>60,'maxlength'=>200)); ?>

		<?php echo $form->error($model,'loc_address'); ?>


	<div class="row buttons">

		<?php echo CHtml::submitButton($model->isNewRecord ? 'Create' : 'Save'); ?>


<?php $this->endWidget(); ?>

</div><!-- form -->


can any body suggest me ,how to achieve client side validation(in javascript) in Yii?

I think the most simple solution would be just do it manually…

Yii forms helpfull in my opinion only in regular validation without ajax …

Could not find a good example that will convince my that I wrong

Starting from Yii 1.1.7, client-side validation in Javascript is build-in into framework. For more info or details – see CActiveForm.enableClientValidation.
