the problem:

if i have a switch statement with several cases and each case itself 
constituted a view/page for the user (meaning the content of a case uses 
the whole viewport of the client) there might occur a validation problem 
or more precisely a problem with signaling validation errors through alerts.

e.g. the user fills out 'page 1' and moves on to another case. Fills out 
other data which by some calculation or action lead to validation 
failures on 'page 1'. - The user won't receive any alert messages and 
will be left without a clue what may have gone wrong.

Is there a solution which i oversee?
