My First XSnippet: Display Client-Side Alert for Server-Side Validation Failure


First, if you have not discovered XSnippets at OpenNTF.org, go there!  No wait!  Go after reading the rest of this post!

Second, for some of my apps I prefer server-side validation but I still need to put something right in front of the user's nose in case the form does not validate so I like a client-side JavaScript alert.  Problem is connecting it nicely with the server-side validation failures.

Bam!  The new 8.5.3 view.postScript() method totally fits the bill.
