In a page, I have 10 checkboxes.
If the user presses the submit button when there are more than 5 checked, an error message should appear.
I’ve managed to add the validation to the access rules, but the form submits first before showing the error message. I need the message to appear without the form getting submitted. Is there any way to do that?
In the view page I have
echo $form->error($model, 'boxCount');
(the form->error should have a corresponding input element right? is there a workaround or something?)
In the model
//inside the public function rules() array array('boxCount','validateCount'),
Sorry if the explanation seems a bit messy.
