Validation message in popup Reactive
Application Type

Hi all, I am trying to get a validation message to display in a popup for a mandatory field validation - when it fails. However, it seems that no message comes up automatically when trying to do this in a popup. The only way I have seen it work is when the Property value of 'Repaint' is assigned to the field in OutSystems. However, this only changes the display and does not move the surrounding layout around, so the message displays over the text box slightly rather than below and then moving the components. Does anyone know a better way to do this?

Kind regards

Hi Nicholas,

I have also come across a similar situation. The solution which I would suggest for the mentioned case is to encapsulate the Form within the block and refer the same inside the popup.

See this sample app with the same implementation.

Hope this helps you!
