Specifying Error Events for Signup Form Elements

You can assign validation requirements for each form field so that the form cannot be successfully submitted unless all of the required fields are completed correctly. For example, you can apply a rule for a text box so that the site visitor is required to enter text before submitting the form. If the site visitor leaves the text field blank and submits the form, the form will refresh with error markers, and the visitor will not be able to submit the form until all fields with errors are completed correctly.

  1. In the Signup dialog, click the label for the form element that you want to apply validation options.
  2. Click the Error events tab.
  3. Select a validation requirement from the Error event drop-down list.Available error events will vary depending on the type of form object to which the error event is being applied.
  4. Click the Active to check box so that the error event will be activated on the form.
  5. You can also suspend validation requirements for the form element by clearing the Active check box.
  6. Edit the default error message text by replacing the default text in the Message field.
  7. Error messages for each form element that did not meet validation requirements will appear below the form.
  8. To apply a custom CSS style to the form object, type the name of the CSS style in the text box or select the style from the drop-down list.
