    I'm using Icenium to create a new mobile app with Kendo UI. I'm trying to learn to use form validation and I'm not having much success. I tried to copy the relevant code here:

    Here are my issues/questions:

    1. The Name field shows an error even if I type a name.
    2. The checkbox required validation seems wonky in general.
    3. Please look through and see if I am doing anything generally dumb.

    Hi Maxwell,

    I have already replied to your questions in the support ticket that you submitted on the same subject. For convenience I am pasting my reply here as well:
    1. The error for Name displays even when I type a valid name.
      I would like to remind you that each custom rule will be run for each element in a form. The error message displays event when you type a valid name because when the custom rule is evaluated it returns false.
      confirmPassword: function(input) {
          return"[name=confirmPassword]") && input.val() === $('#formCreateAccount input[name="password"]').val(); //always returns false for name's input

    2. The checkbox validation seems really wonky in general.
      I removed the custom validation rules and got everything to work as expected. Please check the custom validation logic and pattern reg expressions and let me know if the problem with the check box still persists.

    I hope this will help.

    Kind regards,
