How to make use of Validation parent property of widget? State some examples

Hi,

Validation parent property if too group widgets in a way you perform the validation at the same time for all the widgets that belong to the same parent.

An example could be on a form where you want to validate some widgets before the other. Lets say you want to validate first the name and email that are inside 1 parent and after that validate the rest of the fields that are inside of other parent.

Regards,

Marcelo

Thank you Marcelo. But still iam not clear.

If I understand you correctly, you are referring to the "Validation Parent" property of the input widget?

This property relates to the "Edit Record" widget only and is an older way of doing grouped validation.

Allows you to bind an Input widget to a specific Edit Record widget . You can select the Edit Record from a drop-down list of the Edit Record widgets currently placed in the screen or screen block.

All inputs that are within a form are validated together when the button or link that is clicked is in the form widget.
