Programatically validate a form

Programatically validate a form

  
Hello,

Is there a way I can programatically trigger the validation of a EditRecord, maybe without triggering submit?

Thanks,
Liviu
Anyway, the bigger problem is that I don't understand how I can use Web Blocks to reuse fields in a form... I need to get the data from those fields and the only way I can do that is by using Notify Text Messages... 

I have some fields that represent a child object and I don't want to use popups to create the child object because I have an one-to-one relationship. I want to display those common fields in several forms by using a Web Block and when I submit the "parent" form to get the data from the child as well...
