How to Validate Using Saved Data from Database Instead of Post?
mattcdavis1 - 1 year ago
I have a multi-step front-end form that breaks down a stream into 5 tabs of fieldsets and saves each set independently using skips to handle validation for each step. When a user clicks a certain button that is only available on the last step, i want to validate all steps after the last step has been validated and saved.
At the point that i want to validate the entire form, all of the data would have been saved to the database already. I want to validate the form using the existing saved data. What is the best way to accomplish this?
