Im using yaromat form validator within dreamweaver MX, The validation side works, but once I click OK to the error message (eg "Please enter your email address") Im able to leave this blank and click the send button. Is there a way I can freeze the send button until something has been entered into the email text field?

Hi Andrew,

Why not use a Javascript validator?
It will be much easier and works a treat.

function Form_Validator(theForm)
if (theForm.realname.value == "")
alert("Please enter a value for the \"Name\" field.");
return (false);

add this into the action line:
<form method="post" action="/cgi-bin/yourscript.pl" name="theForm" onSubmit="return Form_Validator(theForm)">

Never had experience of what you are using..but this will NOT allow a user to submit if the required fields are blank..everytime they do they just get an error box back! Sweet!
