    Date Picker Widget not generating Error Message when not Filled out

    Asked by SixPlus on March 02, 2016 at 12:23 PM


    I'm using the Date Picker Widget on one of my forms and it is a required field but when a user does not fill it out, they get no error message. Please let me know if there's a way to fix this.

    It is true Emily that it does not show the error the same as it does for other fields, but you would not be able to submit the form unless you fill it out. At that time - and until you fill it out, the "this field is required" notification will be shown.

    Based on my tests the same (as described above) happens, causing the form not to be submitted without the input. Are you by some chance experiencing something else - form being submitted even without the value?
