I have a page where I use AJAX to call a PHP file which validates a couple of fields in a form. I use onblur to call a JS function which is a AJAX call a PHP file which checks the field for validity.

I have read a little about using JS to validate client-side (folks say this is a thing to do) and PHP to validate server-side (folks say this is a must).

So where does AJAX fit into the validation of form data...???

I have read where JS is useless if the surfer has it turned off. But you cannot really use my site if JS is turned off.

Comments???

AJAX can be used to validate data interactively as users type. You still need to re-validate everything when the form is posted, as AJAX is JS based and can be deactivated and bots can post data without executing the JS.

What you can use AJAX for is:

  • local verification
  • remote verification

Local verification: you check things like "password1 == password2"
Remote verification: you call a script on the server (PHP,Perl,etc.) which tells you if a parameter is valid (e.g. usernamve available)

As already stated you will anyway to redo the checks server side.
