// Problem: Hints are shown even when forms are valid // Solution: hide and show the hints when valid var $password = $("#password"); var $confirmpassword = $("#confirm_password");

$("form span").hide();

// find out if password is valid

function isPasswordValid() {

return $password.val().length > 8 ;


function passwordEvent() {

if (isPasswordValid()) {

  //Hide hint if valid

$password.next().hide(); } else {

//else show hint 

$password.next().show(); } };

function arePasswordsMatching () {

return $password.val() === $confirmpassword.val() ; }

function confirmpasswordEvent() { // find out if password and confirmation match if (arePasswordsMatching()) { // hide hint if match $confirmpassword.next().hide(); } // else show hint else {



// when event happens on password input


// when event happens on confirmation


// if user can submit functions

function canSubmit() {

return isPasswordValid() && arePasswordsMatching();


// submit disable\enable

function enableSubmitEvent() {

$("#submit").prop("disabled" , !canSubmit());
