    Getting validation errors even before submitting..!! Why??

    Asked by katra on May 20, 2016 at 10:18 AM

    I have fields that are required on a form, but these fields are showing and error messages if you skip them even before submitting the form!  Why?  The errors should show only if a form is submitted with empty fields but not as you go along....   How can i change this?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the validation of fields when the form is submitted. The current configuration validating the fields when they are focused out helps the user to identify the error of the field immediately and it wouldn't have to go through the entire form to check the errors, especially when we have multi-page forms.

    Hope this information helps!
