Form Validation Error Placement

Mon Oct 05, 2015 6:04 pm

Hello, I'm using LSPS 3.0.1014 and have a question about form validation error placement.

I have several forms that have reusable forms, and was wondering if there is a way to have the validation error placement show up on a specific field on the reusable form? Currently when I use the Content Assist feature it only detects the ID's of elements on the parent form and not elements in the reusable form despite those element having an ID.

For example, I want to require a first name and when one is not entered I want the validator error placement to be around the first name in the RequestDetails subform.

Basically, there are two simple possibilities:

1. You can put the validator to the reusable form itself. If its usage requires different validations in different situations (inclusions in different forms), you can use parameters of that reusable form to control validation conditions or error messages.

2. Alternatively, you can use data validations, which can treat different situations by different tags. I would recommend this option, because you do not need to specify the same validations in all forms the data appears; you just specify the data constraints once.

3. Perhaps this will help: ... tionerrors . A first approach could be to define a proper include closure on the 'first name' component. Please let me know if this helps.
