    2. In my form "ACHAT & VENTE", i have a required dropdown list "Vous souhaitez ?", i'd like to know how to display the error message at the bottom of the list and not on the list itself (take a look at the screenshot).

    Please inject the following CSS code to the form so that the error messages will be displayed below the dropdown.

    [data-type="control_dropdown"] div.form-error-message {

    margin-top: 24px !important;


    It should be displaying the error message for all drop-down menus on the form as shown below:

    Hope this information helps!
