I think, validations which has sensitive information, should not be done on client side. For example, any business logic that reveals some sensitive algorithm, don't do it on clientYou can do normal data validations, like numbers, date, email, credit card number validations(to validate if user has entered correct pattern for a VISA card but don't connect to gateway API from client directly, rather do it through a server-side script on your server), etc.
I mean things which you see are done on client, can be done..But not sensitive things...-abdulOn 3/6/06, gault17

Flex application. Our current approach is to perform basic datavalidation (valid values for each field) on the client side and invokeserver-side objects to perform more thorough validation such asrelational edits(
e.g. if field x 100, field y must have value AA).However, I'm wondering whether an approach that favors more client-sidevalidation would be better. Something like validate on the client side
as long as no call to the server is required to retrieve additionaldata or access external services. The answer, I imagine, is itdepends. But I'd be interested to know what factors to consider and
what guidelines others are using for their Flex data captureapplications. ThanksGary AultBureau of Labor Statistics--Flexcoders Mailing ListFAQ:
