FormValidation v0.8.1 is released, supports Bootstrap 4 alpha 3

Field value is changed programmatically

Examples

When the field value is changed programmatically by either jQuery's .val() method or other plugins, FormValidation doesn't change the field validity and update the feedback icon.

You need to ask the plugin to revalidate it by calling the revalidateField() method.

// Update the field value
$fieldElement.val(newValue);

// Revalidate it
$(form).formValidation('revalidateField', fieldName);

It's one of principles when integrating FormValidation with 3rd party plugins.

In the following example, after clicking the Set values button, the First name and Last name field are revalidated.

<form id="profileForm" class="form-horizontal">
    <div class="form-group">
        <label class="col-xs-3 control-label">Full name</label>
        <div class="col-xs-4">
            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="firstName" placeholder="First name" />
        </div>
        <div class="col-xs-4">
            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="lastName" placeholder="Last name" />
        </div>
    </div>

    <div class="form-group">
        <div class="col-xs-9 col-xs-offset-3">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" id="setValueButton">Set values</button>
        </div>
    </div>
</form>

<script>
$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#profileForm').formValidation({
        framework: 'bootstrap',
        icon: {
            valid: 'glyphicon glyphicon-ok',
            invalid: 'glyphicon glyphicon-remove',
            validating: 'glyphicon glyphicon-refresh'
        },
        fields: {
            firstName: {
                row: '.col-xs-4',
                validators: {
                    notEmpty: {
                        message: 'The first name is required'
                    }
                }
            },
            lastName: {
                row: '.col-xs-4',
                validators: {
                    notEmpty: {
                        message: 'The last name is required'
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    });

    $('#setValueButton').on('click', function() {
        // Set value for fields
        $('#profileForm')
            .find('input[name="firstName"]').val('Form').end()
            .find('input[name="lastName"]').val('Validation');

        // Revalidate the fields
        $('#profileForm')
            .formValidation('revalidateField', 'firstName')
            .formValidation('revalidateField', 'lastName');
    });
});
