Even with the validation built into html5 there always seems to be the need for something very unique. For example, if you need to make sure that First Name and Last Name are filled, or you need to make sure a particular user does not exist before continuing then you will come to realize that the jquery validator is a very good compliment if not still the choice of validation requirements. I have always loved this validator and still make it an almost automatic load on every web form that requires user input. I was surprised to see that I had a problem using the validator with jquery 1.9. After searching the internet for the error message I was receiving:
The function “call” cannot be called because .handle is undefined.
1. Open jquery.validate.js in notepad or some other tool that will give you line numbers.
2. Locate the following line in the code. (Around Line 1152)
return $.event.handle.call(this, e);
3. Comment it out using //
4. Add the following line right below.
return $.event.dispatch.call( this, e );
5. Save the file
That’s it. If you want to minify the js then you can run it through a tool like this.
