    i noticed this weird behaviour of Text Area (in compare with Text Box):

    i have form with requared Text Area and Text Box

    1.if i push Submit without fill in, the Text Area's Hint Example disappears! (there is no such thing with Text Box)

    2.if i tap on Text Box and not write any letter and than tap on other place on my web page red requared border appears ( there is no such thing with Text Area)

    i need all my form fields behave the same way.

    hope your wil be able to help me (as usual:)

    Hi Slava,

    I understand what you meant. The behaviour is like that because the textbox and the textarea field are using different stylesheets.

    From what I have found so far, the easier way to make the 2 fields have a consistent behaviour in your form is to disable the  red border line required field indicator and as well as the hint text on both the fields.

    You can retain the error message below the submit button as the indicator why the form cannot be submitted due to empty required fields.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance on this.
