Is it ok, to validate some data using jquery? I am working on a plugin which has repeater fields in widgets, so my plan was to convert all repeater field data in json when user clicks on save button. Data which i want to validate is zipcode and text fields. I am not sure, if this is allowed.

  • In my opinion. Yes you can use jQuery for validation. – BlueSuiter May 3 '17 at 12:42

Yes, you can validate data using jquery before submitting form. There is a way custom way to do that by checking the fields value length

        var field_value = $('input[name="some_name"]').val();
           return true;
        } else{
           return false;

Or you can use a jquery validation library.
