Validate form email field

(David Wallace) #1

Okay I’ve searched and read and looked but can’t find or figure it out.

Can someone please explain how I can validate that an email address on a form field is correct?
I assume I use a second field, but what validation do I use?

Normally you would setup a complex validation rule on the (second) “confirm email address” field against a previous ‘email address’ field.

Add Rule > Value Comparison > Must be equal to > OR Value of Form Field: [Enter ID or select email address question asset]

More general info at the bottom of the Email Address Question Type Squiz Manual page.

You could also set the type to email so that you get some free browser client-side validation as well.
