Tbactiveform And Client Validation

hi all,

I inherited a Yii project, never worked a lot with this framework. He used a bootstrap plugin, when creates a form uses something like:

$form = $this->beginWidget('bootstrap.widgets.TbActiveForm', array(

    'action' => array('hose/replacenew2', 'testid'=>$hose->test->number, 'id'=>$newcode),

    'enableClientValidation' => true,


how does it work that client validation? It works in most of the site, but in a special case it does not and I don’t understand what to check.

thanks a lot

Clientvalidation creates jquery validation functions based on the rules() from the model.

thanks a lot for your answer, I think I start to figure out how that works. When does the rules() function been called? If I make a new instance of my model? Also on save I guess?

thanks again

This is a really nice wiki that learned me a lot about the rules: http://www.yiiframework.com/wiki/56/

thanks a lot!
