Jquery form validation – pop up to specific checkbox

Question by holian

I use Jquery form validation. Before visitor submit i need to check the ‘Terms&Cond’ checkbox. If not checked i would like to see the message an alert box. (other messages shown near in the textboxes)

How to set this? I try this:

      errorPlacement: function(error, element) {
            if ( element.is(":checkbox") ) {
        rules: {
            name: {
                required: true,
                minlength: 3,
                maxlength: 40,
                lettersonly: false
            ad: {

But this did not work.

Thank you for help.

error does not have a html() function. You were probably trying to alert the markup of the element.
