Thank you very much for this. This would have been the solution I wanted to implement initially however after some looking at the code and documentation for the different validation languages there didn't seem to be a clear way to implement this, which lead me to conclude that this might not generally be regarded as the preferred way to handle this type of functionality and prompted my question. However if you say that this is actually possible and a valid way to handle this issue and I am well aware of your experience in this area, I will definitely look at this again but now in more depth using the pointers you provided.
