Why doesn't EnableClientValidation (XForms) work as expected?


I have this XForm view that renders correctly. I have also added




EnableClientValidation adds the html element

but that's it. No client side validation is happening and I still have to rely on the server side form validation. I have followed the guide from (which says add EnableClientValidation).

What more do I have to do to make XForm validate on the client?

Hi, what is your CMS version? I've seen mutliple forum threads where other devs have experienced a similar issue, some on 7 and others on 7.5.

I use version 7. I can also mention that I have "normal" forms that I validate with help of Jquery.Unobtrustive/Validate which works (if XForms uses the same library?).
