h5Validate is a jQuery plugin that understands HTML5 forms and knows how to validate them, even in browsers that don’t yet support HTML5.

In browsers that do support HTML5, h5Validate adds some much-needed features, such as the ability to customize the user interface when an input fails validation.

For demo and usage, see the h5Validate homepage.

Jump Start

Copy and paste this at the end of the body on any page with an HTML5 form. If html5 validation rules exist in the form, you’re in business!

<script src="lib/jquery/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.h5validate.js"></script>

<script>
$(document).ready(function () {
    $('form').h5Validate();
});
</script>
