My validation was supposed to fail, but it wasn’t, so my fail validation failed, right? A tough bug to figure out, but I eventually got there. Read my article on SocialBizUg.org to see what happened.
I had an XPage application with pretty simple validation on the page. When the user didn’t enter a value, validation fired and an error message was displayed except on one particular field.
The XPage application setting has turned off client side validation, in order to display error messages on the page. The page uses the Form Table and Form Layout Row controls from the extension library with simple edit boxes for fields. We want to display individual error messages for each field, so the “disableErrorSummary” property on the Form Table control is set to false.
