View Full Version : how to tell if form validation monitoring is turned on?

9 Sep 2009, 9:41 PM

Is there a way to check if a FormPanel's validation monitoring is currently turned on or off? The 'monitorValid' config doesn't get changed/updated by those methods so I can't check using that property.

I'm currently turning validation monitoring on and off on my FormPanel via form.startMonitoring()/stopMonitoring(), and if possible, I'd like to have some form logic based on whether validation monitoring is currently turned on.

thanks a lot, cheers.

PS. firebug shows FormPanel.validTask property appears when monitoring is turned on, and disappears (ie. nullified) when monitoring is turned off. I'm tempted to use it as a flag check, though it's undocumented so depending on it might break my code if future FormPanel implementation changes.

Add a method to FormPanel: "isMonitoring" which checks that property. Use that method in your code.

If the FormPanel implementation ever does change, then you'll only have to change that method.

Good idea, thanks.

Does this mean there's no official/standard way of doing the check though? (at least for the time being?)
