This code will show required icons () for fields using the "not empty" validator.

Form validation script is required for this feature to work. Read more about form validation.

Basic usage


$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#productForm').formValidation({
        addOns: {
          mandatoryIcon: {
            icon: 'fa fa-asterisk'
          }
        },
        fields: {
          fieldName :{
            validators: {
              notEmpty: {
                message: 'The name is required'
              },
              ...
            }
          },
          ...
        }
    });
});

It's also possible to call the add-on in a declarative way. Learn more.
