Validation plugin does not show errors on form in IE if <button> is used instead of <input type="submit"

Reported by: primski Owned by: joern

In Internet Explorer, test in v6 and v7, validation plugin does not show errors if form submited is not valid and <button> is used instead of <input type="submit"...


<html> <head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF8" />

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.2.6.min.js"></script> <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="jquery.validate.js"></script>

<script> $(document).ready(function() {


rules: {

field1: "required"





</head> <body>

<form id="theForm" action="" method="GET">

<input type="input" name="field1" />

<button name="save">Save button</button> <input type="submit" name="save2" />


</body> </html>

Clicking on <button> no erorrs show up, although if form is valid it gets submited with no problems. Clicking on <input type="submit"> everything works as intended.

Add type="submit" to your button element.
