Thanks for the work that you did, Chetan. I've only been able to give it a brief viewing, but it seems to work fairly well and does what I asked. I've posted you maximum feedback on Elance. Thanks, again.
I would like you to look at something else, building upon your previous output, and quote me a price, if you would be so kind.
For the check...
“There are a couple of settings in jquery validation that I had to go and find myself - such as how to use ignore: to validate hidden items. Overall the code from the first part of this job proved to be robust and easily adaptable. It is in actual use today, collecting data for a workshop next week. The workshop is to be held in Delhi.
I will be looking for further help in the future to improve the interactive performance of the sortables. I hope to secure further work from ChetanG during the coming months.”
