+Phuoc Huu Hi, I reached out to you on Twitter but have not heard back from you.

Q: Need to disable form submit before validation. I understand that FV only listens for changes in the form, and if none, then the validator will not process, but is there a way to force this?

Q: If not, how can I return back to FV an error once I process on the server?

Example:
'Referred By' is required, but the user never enters data into that input, so FV never checks.

When they click submit, a click event is triggered which bypasses FV and processes the form.

An error is returned. Can I return this back to FV and have it report back to the user with normal error handling?

Thanks!
