TipTip with form validation

I am trying to use form validation with Jquery so that the tipTip bubble will appear to the side of the textbox when it is invalid and stay there. I thought I would simply put it as a function within the message option, but that doesnt seem to work. The string after the name which is commented out works but not with the tipTip. Any help will be appreciated

var JQUERY4U = {};

    setupFormValidation: function()
        //form validation rules
            rules: {
                name: "required",

            messages: {
                name: //"Please enter your firstname",

            submitHandler: function(form) {

    I hope it's not to late for you, anyway it may be usefull for other people.
    I managed to use tiptip with the jquery validate plugin using the plugin's errorPlacement method :
    errorPlacement: function(error, element) {
    var id=element.attr('id');

                    $(error).tipTip({attribute: 'data-error', defaultPosition:'right', content: function (e) {$(this).tipTip({

    // to dynamically update the tip message if there are many validation rules content:$(this).attr('data-error');});
    }}).insertAfter(element); }

    For my purpose i use a data-error attribute which contains the error message.
    For that, i have overriden the jquery validate showLabel method :

    $.extend($.validator.prototype,{ showLabel: function(element, message) { var label = this.errorsFor( element ); if ( label.length ) { // refresh error/success class label.removeClass( this.settings.validClass ).addClass( this.settings.errorClass );

            // check if we have a generated label, replace the message then
            if ( label.attr("generated") ) {
                label.attr('data-error', message);
        } else {
            // create label
            label = $("<" + this.settings.errorElement + "/>")
                .attr({"for":  this.idOrName(element), generated: true})
                .attr('data-error', message || "");
            if ( this.settings.wrapper ) {
                // make sure the element is visible, even in IE
                // actually showing the wrapped element is handled elsewhere
                label = label.hide().show().wrap("<" + this.settings.wrapper + "/>").parent();
            if ( !this.labelContainer.append(label).length ) {
                if ( this.settings.errorPlacement ) {
                    this.settings.errorPlacement(label, $(element) );
                } else {
        if ( !message && this.settings.success ) {
            if ( typeof this.settings.success === "string" ) {
                label.addClass( this.settings.success );
            } else {
                this.settings.success( label, element );
        this.toShow = this.toShow.add(label);

    Update : the code I copied for the error placement is not the good one :)

    Here is the good one
    // errorPlacement: function(error, element) {

    $(error).tipTip({attribute: 'data-error', defaultPosition:'right', content: function (e) { return $(this).attr('data-error'); }}).insertAfter(element);

    It looks that jQuery has a big difference with C# on the form validation, because I just fiddled with a Form control in C# from a Form&Dialog components several weeks ago.

    Were you successful in creating this new form here? Hope you got it. Additionally, I found information related to the top refinance no equity mortgage plan which might be helpful for you.
