    Showing error message in Datevalidator



      I am using datefield component for date of birth.

      I am using date validator for this.

      My code is like this:-














      xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute"




      <!--<mx:DateChooser width="300" height="300"/>-->



      <mx:DateValidator source="{date}" property="text" allowedFormatChars="/" trigger="{mybutton}" triggerEvent="click"

      valid="Alert.show('Validation Succeeded!');" wrongDayError="Enter corect day"








      <mx:DateField id="date" width="300" height="20" editable="true"






      <mx:Button id="mybutton" click="getDate()" label="validate"/>






      My problem whenever I am adding incorrect day, I am getting an error "Enter correct day". But that appears only when I am mouse over on datefield.

      I want to show that continuously on browser.

      Is there any way to do that?

      Any help appreciated.

          you are saying that, " I want to show that continuously on browser.".

          Did you mean the classic validation like the message in the Alert window,or you want like the validation summary,which in

          normal html pages we gets when we press the submit button.Pls give the detail about this.

          and also put your 'getDate()' method here.

            Yes Iwant to show the error continuously on browser.

            Also I am having one more trouble. Whenever I am trying to get current date by **** like this







            "Date is "+da.getDate());


            I am getting only the day. I want whole date.

            How should I do that?

            Any help appreciated,

              Hi, pls find the solution for your problem.I have created the demo application for this.

              Pls check it.And still you have not given the method getDate().So pls specify that method for more accurate solution.

              Let me know if you have any issue with this.
