Quick Start

  1. Include the bootstrap-validate.js script:
<script src="bootstrap-validate.js"></script>
  1. Setup Validation for your Input Elements:

Imagine the following HTML:

<div class="form-group">
    <label class="control-label">Enter a Name</label>
    <input id="name">

Now you want a Name to be at max 30 characters long and add the following:

bootstrapValidate('#name', 'max:30:Your name must not be longer than 30 characters');

Validating an email address couldn’t be easier!

<div class="form-group">
  <label for="email" class="control-label">Enter your E-Mail</label>
  <div class="input" id="email">

bootstrapValidate('#email', 'email:Enter a valid email address');
