Answer

This is a working jsfiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/P28nR/1/

The things that were missing or incorrect were:

  • You didn't include jquery
  • You included the wrong jquery bootstrap plugin. The correct files can be found at the links below:

//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/bootstrap-validator/0.4.5/css/bootstrapvalidator.min.css //cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/bootstrap-validator/0.4.5/js/bootstrapvalidator.min.js

  • You didn't add the javascript to configure and run the validator plugin

    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#tryitForm').bootstrapValidator({
            feedbackIcons: {
                valid: 'glyphicon glyphicon-ok',
                invalid: 'glyphicon glyphicon-remove',
                validating: 'glyphicon glyphicon-refresh'
            },
            fields: {
                firstName: {
                    validators: {
                        notEmpty: {
                            message: 'The first name is required and cannot be empty'
                        }
                    }
                },
                lastName: {
                    validators: {
                        notEmpty: {
                            message: 'The last name is required and cannot be empty'
                        }
                    }
                },
                email: {
                    validators: {
                        notEmpty: {
                            message: 'The email address is required'
                        },
                        emailAddress: {
                            message: 'The input is not a valid email address'
                        }
                    }
                },
                gender: {
                    validators: {
                        notEmpty: {
                            message: 'The gender is required'
                        }
                    }
                }
            },
            submitHandler: function(validator, form, submitButton) {
                var fullName = [validator.getFieldElements('firstName').val(),
                                validator.getFieldElements('lastName').val()].join(' ');
                alert('Hello ' + fullName);
            }
        });
    });
