Validation - Overview
Validation is a feature that ensures that a mandatory field contains values that exactly match your requirements. For example, you might apply email validation on a field to ensure that the text entered in that field is a well-formed email address. It's easy to make a mistake typing in an email address. Adding validation to the field greatly enhances the probability of collecting a correct address and then the reliability of your email autoresponder deliveries.
Logiforms provides an in-depth library of validation types to quickly and easily validate field values for things like zip codes, social insurance numbers, numeric values, specific lengths and more. After you set up the validation, it's done automatically. Validation does not get in the way of users filling out your form. They receive clear, specific guidance in a timely and unobtrusive manner, so that they can quickly fix mistakes and move on to correct completion.
For validation to work, at least one element must be enabled for validation. Use the Field Validation Settings panel to define your requirements.
If the user enters an invalid email address, they will trigger a validation error.
If you want to make a field required AND validate a specific format, then you must set Required to true AND apply a validation method.

- In the Form Validation Settings panel, configure properties for the entire form. For example, you might configure the position and format of the error messages. which are global, and apply to the entire form.
