I tend to see validation on both the client side and server side
frequently, and in our use of Annotator, it was requested to have client
side validation to minimize the server hit for erroneous data.
The only way I've been able to accomplish this is to modify the core by
prepending in the Editor.submit method. It returns if the validation
does not pass (doesn't hit the this.hide()) call. I was not able to
accomplish this without modifying the core. I shared this override in my
list of modified core notes at
Randall replied that there is a Editor _onFormSubmit callback that is
not public. I interpreted his further response that this is still being
worked on related to the current refactoring.
