In the Field Validation Setting panel, you can configure properties that relate only to the selected field. These are different from those properties that relate to the entire form that are configured in Form Validation Settings.
In Form Designer, you access the Field General Setting panel by clicking on any field in the Form Outline Panel in the upper left corner, then choosing Field Validation Setting in the lower left corner.
Validation is a feature that checks the user entry to make sure it is correct. For example, you might validate a field to be sure that it is in a correct email or telephone number format. See Validation for more details.
The left column contains the names of each Property, and the right column contains the current Value of each property. To make a change, click in the Value column next to the Property that you need to change. Remember to save your changes.
Here is a list of the settings as they first appear in the Validation group of the Element Properties Panel. More properties become available when you choose a Validation method. See below.
|Required||Default is false. Choose true to make this field required.|
Default is no validation. Change by choosing the form of validation from the dropdown list: No Validation, Alpha, ZipCode, PostalCode, Numeric, Alphanumeric, DateFormat, Custom Format, Phone Number, Email Address, Range, Length, Length Greater than, Length Less than, Credit Card Block, Is Not Emptry, Confirm Duplicate Entry, Integer, SSN, Zip or Postal, Custom RegEx, Greater Than, Less Than, Is Different, Currency, ABN, ACN, Valid Address, Remote (Advanced), Multiple (Advanced).
Additional fields may display in this panel, depending on which form of validation you select. See Validation Methods for Text elements for details of text fields and Validation Methods for Selection elements for details about validating radio buttons and checkbox fields.
|Exclude Error Prefix||When a validation error is shown , it is prefixed with the statement "Error on field [fieldname]". If you want the user to see this message, choose false. If you do not want the user to see that message, choose true.|
|Hide Required Asterisk||Default is false. Set to true to not show the asterisk for this field, if the field is required.|
|Hide Error Icon||When a validation error is shown, do you want to see the error icon? Choose true if you do not want to see the error icon. Choose false if you do want to see it.|
|Custom Message||Enter a custom message to display when the entry does not pass validation checks. This message will appear only when the assigned method in the Validation property has been set, not when a required field is left blank.|
|Conditional Validation||Available only when you choose a Validation method. Conditional evaluation depends on a rule, so the validation error will trigger only if the condition in the rule exists and there has been an erroneous user entry error in this field. Learn more in Conditional Validation.|
