    If javascript is disabled, question.

    Asked by on October 10, 2010 at 03:51 AM

    I tried to disable Javascript on a form page and I noticed that validation rules are not checked anymore on the client. That's OK. But I also noticed that if I submit an invalid form with js engine off, the data are still collected as if they were valid because probably no server side checks are done. If it's the case, is there a way to reject invalid form submissions when Javascript is not enabled on the browser?

    Many thanks,

    best regards.

    I added this to our suggestions list. I think it is possible. We had server side checks previously, but they were temporarily disabled since they were causing problems with Conditional Logic feature. But I think we can enable them for forms that has no conditional logic. 

    The weird thing is nobody asked for this for months since it has been disabled. That probably means JavaScript is pretty much available everywhere.

    That'd be really really GREAT (and important)! Please, notify using this thread when server side validation will be enabled again, if ever.

    Many thanks.

    P.S. I'm the OP.
