validate (regex) all fields dynamicly
validate all fields dynamically (including non required), check for legal characters and strip html, return error for client form
October 15, 2012

Hi there, love the plugin, love it!!

i have a multi form of 5, since not all of the fields are required so they  wont be checked for illegal entries (its potently unsafe if its save to database), can i run one function to check for all possibilities and make sure no illegal chars/nums.. etc, were entered.

So i can use as follows:




// to strip html


function isValid($str) {
    return !preg_match('/[^A-Za-z0-9.#\\-$]/', $str);

// to validate

If i want to put it in to my_cforms_logic  function, how do i loop it thought all data – field names dynamically, and then set to return an error on the client form where the error was found?

Can any one help me please?
