When to show inline validation

A List ApartI’ve recently been reviewing usability of web forms and came across this article on A list Apart. Inline Validation in Web Forms

The wonderful thing about this article is they show eye tracking results and web form efficiency using different types of inline validation (After, While and Before). They actually time how long it takes users to fill out the same for using different methods of validation. We’ve actually had this exact argument in the office trying to decide which method was best.

Thank you for settling an ongoing dispute LukeW and everyone at A List Apart
