[validate] Validation plugin is slow when onkeyup activated

Validate-plugin is slow when onkeyup is activated.

I have some fields, and one of them is using a custom validation function, which just performs a regex test (two regex actually).

Plugin "slows down computer", I mean there is a delay between typing a key and having the letter appear.

I suggest using sort of a timer to detect "end of typing" and then performing validation (and not on keyup, which is in fact not interesting).

Thanks for this plugin, have a nice day ! :)

You can always disable keyup-validation via onkeyup:false.

If that isn't enough, please provide an example of your custom method, and reopen this ticket.

I am experiencing the same issue

It seems a shame to loose the keyup functionality, can the validation be called after a pause on keyup so...

var keyupPauseId;

onkeyup = function(){
 if(keyupPauseId){ clearInterval(keyupPauseId);}
 keyupPauseId = setTimeout(doValidation, 2500);

this is obviously psuedo-code, just to give an idea of what I mean
